If you believe you have experienced discrimination at work, we can help you. Massachusetts law protects employees from discrimination in the workplace due to age, race, sex, pregnancy, gender, ancestry, national origin, sexual orientation, military status, genetic information, handicap, and disability. This includes discrimination in all aspects of employment, including hiring, training, promotion, discipline, lay off and termination. Employers may not make employment decisions such as hiring, promotion or termination because of an employee’s age, race, sex, pregnancy, gender, ancestry, national origin, sexual orientation, military status, genetic information, handicap, and disability.
In addition, Massachusetts law prohibits employers from retaliating against employees who have complained about discrimination or who have cooperated in an investigation of a discrimination complaint. This includes informal reports of discrimination to supervisors and sometimes co-workers, and formal reports to your employer’s human resources department, whether these complaints are verbal or written.
At Miller Employment Law, we help Massachusetts employees who have been subjected to unlawful employment discrimination. We can negotiate with your employer about unlawful discrimination, and we can represent you at the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission or in Massachusetts state or federal court.
MASSACHUSETTS LAW REQUIRES EMPLOYEES TO FILE A CLAIM WITH THE MASSACHUSETTS COMMISSION AGAINST DISCRIMINATION WITHIN 300 DAYS AFTER THE DISCRIMINATORY INCIDENT OCCURRED.
