Massachusetts law makes it illegal for employers to discriminate against employees based on the employee’s gender, sexual orientation, age (if the employee is over 40), race, national origin or ancestry, disability, genetic information, or membership in the armed services/veteran status.

Our attorneys have an impressive record of victories before the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination and in the courts. If you are an employer, we can help you avoid a claim of discrimination or help you resolve the claim in the most cost effective manner. If you are an employee we can advise you regarding your rights and help you in pursuit of your claim.

If you reside, work, or operate a business in Massachusetts and have a dispute with your employer or employee, you may want to consider arbitration or mediation as a way to avoid the expense and disruption of litigation.
