Students develop online salary calculator to help migrant workers

A team of SMU students, calling themselves "Legal Kaki", jumped in to support migrant workers who are concerned they will not be paid their usual wages. SMU students Shukrina Salam, Sambhavi Rajangam, Joey Chung and Abhyuday Samadder have developed an online salary calculator, called CalculAID, to help them assess their salary claims. It also provides guidance on the claims process. Legal Kaki was formed in 2019 at the SMU Legal Innovation and Technology club's inaugural hackathon. The team presented solutions to increase access to justice across the various areas of law in Singapore and emerged second runners-up in the competition. Since then, the four have been working closely with the Singapore Academy of Law to improve access to justice related to employment matters.
