Employment Attorney Boston

Massachusetts law prohibits discrimination in employment and housing. Employers and landlords may not base decisions on a person’s race, color, gender, age, national or ethnic origin, handicap or sexual orientation. These are challenging cases, because bigoted people will go to great lengths to hide their prejudices and will offer seemingly neutral reasons for their decisions. If a case can be proven, however, the law provides for the recovery of lost income and benefits and the award of money damages for the emotional distress suffered by victims of discrimination. There are unique procedural requirements for the launching of a discrimination suit in Massachusetts, so you need a lawyer who has vast experience in this area of the law.
