Standing Up for Employees in Wrongful Termination/Retaliation Lawsuits

Massachusetts is an "at-will" employment state. This means that except for specific statutory reasons, either employer or employee can terminate employment at any time and for any reason — including no reason at all. Therefore, most times there is no cause of action for wrongful termination or wrongful discharge. However, this does not mean there is no recourse for employees who have been wronged by their employer. Most presumed wrongful termination cases actually involve illegal issues such as employment discrimination or employment retaliation.

When you come to our law firm suspecting your employer wrongfully terminated or wrongfully discharged you, we examine possible causes of action for which we can hold your employer accountable, such as:

  • Age, pregnancy, gender/sex or other employment discrimination
  • Retaliation for filing a sexual harassment claim
  • Retaliation for filing an employment discrimination claim
  • Retaliation for reporting illegal conduct of an employer (whistleblower claims)
  • Breach of an employment contract
  • Other employment law violations
