Equal Opportunity Employment in Massachusetts

Federal and state laws guarantee employees the right to work free of discrimination and harassment based on race, sex (gender), pregnancy, religion, national origin, age and disability and other protected classifications. Therefore, if you are denied employment, denied a promotion or are discharged on account of your protected status, you may have a claim.

Have you experienced employment discrimination at your workplace? You do not have to accept it. You have the legal right to pursue damages and injunctive relief for the harm and injustices caused by discrimination, bigotry, prejudice, and a racially or sexually hostile work environment.

To discuss your concerns with an attorney, call 508-668-5595.

Retaliation / Whistleblower Laws

The same laws that protect employees from discrimination also protect them from the further injustice of employer retaliation and retaliatory discharge. If you have opposed discrimination in the workplace or have filed an MCAD or EEOC charge, and your employer retaliates against you by firing, demoting, or disciplining you, you may have a claim.

Experienced and Skilled Employment Discrimination Lawyer

A victim of employment discrimination and retaliation must file his or her charge with the MCAD and/or Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). The filing of an MCAD or EEOC charge is normally a prerequisite to a lawsuit for discrimination or retaliation. An employee must file a charge of discrimination or retaliation with the MCAD within 300 days of when he or she learned of the adverse employment action or harassment. The moral of the story is that employees cannot sleep on their rights.

An experienced lawyer can advocate for your rights before the MCAD or the EEOC, in negotiations with your employer, and in court. Attorney Robert H. Fennessy, Jr. has helped many victims fight discrimination in the workplace.
