Connecticut and Massachusetts have powerful laws that protect workers from wrongful termination and other unfair practices by employers. Even if your termination was not illegal, you may still have been deprived of wages or overtime pay you earned and which is now owed to you.
Our dedicated employee rights lawyers at Hayber, McKenna & Dinsmore can vigorously pursue your claim, even in the most complex of cases and against large corporations. Your employer must treat you fairly under the law and we will fight for the justice you deserve.
We are experienced employment attorneys and have represented the victims of wrongful termination, harassment, wage and hour claims, denial of leave and other violations of Connecticut, Massachusetts, and federal employment law. We have helped our clients get reinstated to their old jobs, collect back pay wrongfully denied to them, as well as compensatory and punitive damages.

Employment Law Attorneys At Your Side
I worked for a retailer and was a Plaintiff in a class action for unpaid overtime wages. Hayber, McKenna & Dinsmore did an amazing job of getting our unpaid overtime back to us. Every one at the firm that I dealt with through that process was wonderful to work with. I appreciate all they did for us more than you will ever know.L. LEHEUP, GEORGIA
It depends on the level of control exerted over you. If you are free to work when and how you please, you are likely an independent contractor. If, however, you have detailed procedures to follow, wear a company uniform, and are told when to come and go, you are more like an employee. Many employers are classifying employees as independent contractors these days in order to save on benefits, taxes, and other costs. Employees around the country are fighting back.
I’ve been told that I am an “at will” employee. Does that mean that I have no rights?
No. Being an “at will” employee simply means that you don’t have a contract of employment for a specific period of time. You still have lots of rights, including the rights provided under the various discrimination statutes as well as rights under the common law including defamation, and negligent misrepresentation.
Does my employer have to do an investigation if I am sexually harassed?
Yes. State and Federal law require employers to conduct prompt and thorough investigations of sexual harassment claims.
Am I entitled to unemployment benefits if I quit my job?
Usually not. The general rule of unemployment is that you are not entitled to unemployment benefits if you quit. The exception to the rule is if you quit because of “sufficient cause” attributable to your employer. You also have to show that you took reasonable steps to complain before quitting.
