An Overview of Employment Law Services We Offer in Massachusetts
Wage and Hour Laws
Wage and hour regulations exist to ensure that employees receive fair pay for the hours of work that they have put towards supporting their employer. As an example, workers in Massachusetts are owed a minimum wage of at least $12.75 (2020). Additionally, unless you are an overtime exempt employee, you may be owed time and a half (1.5x) your standard hourly wage for every hour you clock beyond 40 hours in a given week. There are many other important wage and hour laws in place as well—from final paycheck laws to unused vacation time protections. To learn more about what we can do for you or your loved one, please contact our Massachusetts wage and hour attorneys today.
State and federal laws protect employees from sexual harassment in the workplace. Notably, under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, sexual harassment is a form of sex-based discrimination. Employers have a proactive obligation to stop and prevent sexual misconduct and harassment in the workplace. All allegations or complaints should be taken seriously. If you or your loved one were forced to endure harassment on the job, professional support is just a phone call away. At Hayber, McKenna & Dinsmore, LLC, our Massachusetts sexual harassment lawyers are committed to getting justice, accountability, and fair compensation for our clients.
In Massachusetts, employers have wide discretion over hiring and firing decisions. In fact, companies can remove an employee for many reasons, even for an ill-advised reason. However, state and federal laws protect workers from being terminated for illegal reasons. Among other things, employees cannot be fired for raising a complaint, exercising one of their lawful rights, reporting illegal conduct (whistleblowing), on discriminatory grounds, or in violation of a valid contract. If you believe that you were wrongfully terminated, it is imperative that you take immediate action to protect your rights. To set up a fully private, comprehensive review of your case, please contact our Massachusetts wrongful termination lawyers today.
