Defending Employment Claims
Employment termination often provokes financial concerns and even feelings of vindictiveness. As a result, wrongful termination litigation sometimes may be unavoidable—even with well-crafted employment policies and procedures in place.
Employers who suspect they will encounter litigation from a disgruntled employee need effective and experienced counsel. Many times employers do not confer with counsel until suit has already been filed. Waiting, however, can prove detrimental. Employers who anticipate litigation or the threat of litigation from a disgruntled employee should immediately seek the advice of counsel.
Our Boston employment lawyers have extensive experience in representing employers in all aspects of employee relations. Our employment attorneys are highly knowledgeable of wage and hour issues, classification of employees, State and Federal leave requirements, non-competes and non-solicitation agreements, discrimination, wrongful termination, FMLA, ADA, use of independent contractors, sales representatives agreements, sexual harassments and virtually every other issue that could arise in an employment situation.
Our employment attorneys have trial experience in both Federal and State courts, as well as before the MCAD. The firm’s employment lawyers have also handled numerous arbitrations and mediations.
