Allegations of discrimination, including age discrimination, sexual orientation discrimination, race discrimination, handicapped discrimination, and gender discrimination, in the workplace have increased significantly over the past few decades. As a result, the laws governing complaints has changed rapidly and become much more complex. The attorneys at Reardon Law Office LLC have represented individuals and corporations in these actions at the administrative level and throughout trials and appeals. We have recently handled several successful claims at the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination (MCAD).Our lawyers have also successfully mediated and arbitrated such claims when the situation warranted. Success or failure in these actions will often be determined by the approach taken at the outset of the action. Therefore, our attorneys provide strategic counsel from the outset with the goal of attaining our clients goals and objectives.
The attorneys at Reardon Law Office LLC have extensive experience in New England regarding representation of clients with labor and employment law issues. These issues can arise after years of successful employment or in the midst of a new venture. Charges such as the filing of unfair labor practices, complaints, and administrative and court proceedings can cause major problems for employers and employees alike.
Our lawyers have vast experience with collective bargaining agreements, both in the formation and in litigation. Our lawyers can help draft contracts that minimize the risk for misinterpretations that can lead clients to have to defend their contracts in front of arbitrators, government agencies, or the Court.
As with anything, it is better to avoid any potential conflict or litigation before it arises and that is why our firm offers training and counseling to employers and employees in this area.
Our firm represents professionals in disciplinary hearings and reciprocity hearings before the commonwealth and state professional licensing board. In the health care industry, our attorneys have represented physicians, dentists, psychiatrists, nurses, pharmacists, physical therapists, and other medical professions before the Board of Registration in Medicine and other licensing authorities for over thirty years.
Our lawyers have also represented medical professions at disciplinary hearings at hospitals, nursing homes, and other various medical facilities. Our attorneys have also been litigating in the Courts and before administrative agencies on behalf of health care professions for over 30 years.
Claims for “retaliation” arise when a person alleges that they suffered an adverse employment action because they had made complaint about unlawful treatment by their employer. Many courts have held that a claim for retaliation will stand even if the original complaint is found to be not legitimate. Thus, courts have held that if an employee can prove that the real reason for their termination was their prior complaint about being discriminated against in the workplace rather than the reason given by the employer, a cause of action could be pursued for retaliation rather than discrimination. There are very specific laws and regulations governing these claims. Thus, the approach taken by parties involved in such claims is critical to success in the action. Our attorneys have represented many parties involved in matters alleging retaliation and therefore, can advise about the best strategic approach to gain the desired outcome for our clients.
Another area that has been very prevalent in retaliation claims over the past decade are employees claiming that an employer has retaliated against them after the employee applied for medical leave under the Family Medical Leave Act.
