An Overview of Employment Law Services We Offer in Hampden County, MA
Wage and Hour Laws
There are important state and federal regulations in place that protect employee rights and prevent businesses and organizations from underpaying workers. Our Hampden County wage and hour lawyers handle the complete range of wage and hour cases—from companies misclassifying employees as independent contractors to employers violating overtime regulations. No matter the nature of your wage and hour claim, our legal team can help you get results. We have experience representing individual employees and groups of workers. If you feel that you or your loved one was paid less than the full wages/benefits owed under Massachusetts law or federal law, please contact us today.
Sexual Harassment Claims
Every employee is entitled to safe and fair conditions in their workplace. No one should be forced to endure sexual harassment on the job—whether it comes from a manager, a co-worker, or even from a customer. Still, sadly, sexual misconduct in the workplace occurs far too often in Massachusetts.
If you were sexually harassed on the job, it is imperative that you take immediate action to protect your rights. Among other things, you should keep detailed notes and report the incident(s) to your supervisor or to the human resources department. At Hayber, McKenna & Dinsmore, LLC, our Hampden County sexual harassment attorneys are compassionate, committed advocates for employees. We will review your case, explain your options, investigate the matter, and take action to get you justice and full and fair financial support.
Wrongful Termination Claims
Massachusetts is an ‘at-will’ employment state—meaning companies and organizations retain considerable discretion in making their own personnel decisions. A company can terminate an employee for a wide array of different reasons, including for some poorly thought out or genuinely unfair reasons.
That being said, employers cannot terminate or discharge a worker for an illegal reason. For example, an employee cannot be removed for a discriminatory reason or in retaliation for exercising their legal rights under state or federal law. If you believe that you were illegally fired or were unlawfully laid off by your employer, please contact our Hampden County wrongful termination lawyer for immediate assistance with your case.
