EMPLOYEES

Jobs are not only a source of income, but they define us. No one relishes the prospect of involving an attorney in one's employment relationship, but there are times a person is left with no other choice.  The employment attorneys at CW have years of litigation and trial experience in both State and Federal courts, as well as extension experience before the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination (MCAD) and Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).  We can guide and protect you through the harsh terrain of employment litigation and claims.

CW represents individuals with respect to wrongful termination, overtime claims, wage and hours claims, misclassification claims, discrimination claims, hostile work environment, harassment claims, Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) claims, maternity and pregnancy leave claims, non-compete claims, non-solicitation claims and other claims arising out of employment agreements.  If you have unpaid wages, we can prepare a wage and hour claim to submit to the Office of the Attorney General and then handle your case through the courts.  If you have been discriminated or retaliated against or harassed because of your age, sex, nationality, race or handicap, we will prepare and file a complaint with the MCAD, and, when appropriate, remove that claim and file and prosecute it in State or Federal court.  We also represent employees in negotiating employment contracts and severance agreements, as well as litigating any breaches arising from employment agreements, such as violations of non-competes, non-solicitations, disclosure of confidential information and wrongful termination.
