Employment Law in Massachusetts
When something goes wrong with a job or an employee, it can be hard to know where to start to understand your rights. Below are a few of the most common topics we help employees and employers with under Massachusetts employment laws.
Employment Law: Discrimination
Employment discrimination is unlawful. If you believe you were singled out based on race, gender, disability, or other protected class, we can help you understand whether you have a legal claim and pursue compensation if you do.
Employment Law: Wage and Hour Violations
It is illegal under Massachusetts wage and hour laws for an employer to withhold wages or commissions, or overtime pay for eligible employees. We can help you get what you are owed, or ensure your business is not at risk due for a wage and hour lawsuit.
Employment Law: Sexual Harassment
You have a right to be free from sexual harassment at work. If you report harassment, your employer has a duty to investigate fairly and not to retaliate against you. We can help if you believe these rights have been violated.
Employment Law: Non Compete Agreements
We can help you make an informed decision about signing a new non compete agreement, understand your rights under an existing agreement, and defend you if your employer tries to enforce your non compete agreement.
Employment Law: Independent Contractors
If you are working as an independent contractor, you may be missing important benefits and protections the law gives to employees. Contact us to find out if you have been misclassified and how you can make it right.
Employment Law: Job Termination and Severance
Losing a job is hard. Not understanding why or whether your termination was lawful can also be hard. We can help you assess your situation, identify potential legal claims, and/or negotiate a better severance package. If you have received a performance improvement plan, we can also help you assess your overall situation and whether there is anything unlawful happening in your workplace.
