Experienced Massachusetts Employment Litigation Defense Lawyers
When an employer is faced with accusations of discrimination, retaliation or sexual harassment, immediate legal representation is needed.
Our attorneys bring extensive experience in the area of employment law. We make regular appearances before the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination and state and federal courts in claims involving discrimination and harassment. In addition, our lawyers handle employment litigation, breach of contract, wrongful termination, tortious interference, defamation, and state and federal statute violations.
Specific areas of our employment law practice include:
- Discrimination — Our attorneys have extensive experience in discrimination cases involving age, race, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, and disability. On behalf of our clients, we have appeared before the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination (MCAD), the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), and state and federal courts.
- Sexual Harassment — Interpreting the behavior and intentions of the individuals involved is the first of many challenges we face in these cases. Our attorneys handle these cases through Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) methods or litigation. They strive to educate themselves on related case law to stay on the cutting-edge.
- Employment Disputes — Employment disputes can take the form of contract disputes, defamation or emotional distress. Our attorneys handle the full range of employment disputes including investigations, internal appeals, arbitrations and unemployment hearings. We strive to stay current on constantly evolving state and federal statutes and regulations.
- Contracts — Our attorneys bring experience and attention to detail in drafting contracts, conducting negotiations between employers and employees, and consulting with individuals on their contractual rights and obligations. They are also skilled in resolving disputes through ADR methods and trial litigation.
