EMPLOYMENT LITIGATION

Disputes in the workplace can lead to prolonged conflict, termination of employment, and losses that are both economic and emotional.  A wide variety of claims can arise from these disputes, including employment discrimination, breach of contract, whistleblowing, non-payment of wages, and wrongful termination.

Employment cases frequently begin with administrative claims in the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination or the Office of the Attorney General.  Cases may be resolved in those agencies, or they may be removed to state or federal court.  Trial or settlement of these cases may involve complex relationships between employee, employer, taxing authorities and other stakeholders.

We have a broad range of experience with cases involving:

  • Discrimination based upon race, gender, religion, sexual orientation,

  • Sexual harassment

  • Severance and wrongful termination

  • Non-payment of wages, improper withholding of taxes

  • Improper employee misclassification as independent contractors

  • Non-payment of benefits

  • Whistleblower and retaliation claims

  • Severance agreements
