EMPLOYMENT LAW

We represent individuals who have been the victims of discrimination or sexual harassment in the workplace, or have not been paid the wages they are owed.

It is unlawful for an employer to discriminate against a person because of race, religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, age, handicap, or ancestry. An employer may not discriminate in any aspect of employment – recruiting, hiring, training, promotion, benefits, wages or other compensation, discipline or discharge.

These protections apply to both employees and job applicants.

By law an employee may not be sexually harassed on the job. Sexual harassment basically refers to sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other words or conduct of a sexual nature. Hostile work environments are prohibited and sexual harassment creates such a workplace. Sexual harassment is forbidden regardless of whether it is between people of the opposite sex or people of the same sex.

It is also unlawful for an employer to fail to pay wages, commissions, and overtime. In some situations, triple damages can be awarded for the failure to pay wages for time worked.

In Massachusetts there are very short time periods (statutes of limitation) for bringing a claim for discrimination, harassment, or unpaid wages.

If you feel you have been a victim of any of the above improper employment practices in your job, contact us as soon as possible so your rights are preserved.

SECURITIES LAW

Securities dealers/brokers are required to invest your money in a reasonable manner and to follow your instructions with respect to the level of risk you wish to assume. The trades they make must be authorized and you must be provided with notice of everything that is being done with your investment.

If you feel your broker has not invested your money wisely or has engaged in improper practices, such as unauthorized trading, unsuitable trading, or misrepresentation, you may have a claim.
