For a business owner, employees are likely the single largest financial investment of the company and the single most important drivers of success or failure. 


For  employees who rely on salary or wages to support their families, and on the experience to build their careers, the relationship is equally, if not more, important.  


In short, you need each other- businesses and employees- and in many cases the relationship is positive and beneficial to both parties.  But things sometimes do go wrong, and we know what that looks like from both perspectives: we have helped both businesses and employees navigate issues under the Massachusetts Wage Act, the state and federal anti-discrimination laws, non-compete agreements, and the Massachusetts Independent Contractor law.

We hope that the links below are helpful- if you need more information, or if you are looking for a lawyer to represent you in an employment dispute, you can call us at 781-784-2322, fill out our web form here, or use the "live chat" button on the left of your screen to let us know what you need help with.  Our staff would be happy to set up a consultation with an attorney whose expertise meets your needs.
