CMCJH Law


CMCJH Employment Law in Massachusetts

In the course of our ongoing relationships with our management clients, we provide counsel in all manner of workplace issues, including hiring, discipline, harassment, termination or protection of intellectual property. Our advice ranges from the use of effective documents and procedures to reviewing "real time" decisions, in order to minimize potential claims.

While we seek to reduce or minimize the impact of legal entanglements through effective and ongoing counseling, we recognize the importance of anticipating and preparing for lawsuits when necessary. We are therefore experienced in representing our clients in the state and federal courts and administrative agencies (e.g. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination (MCAD), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and Federal and State Department of Labor Wage/Hour Divisions). If it appears that a matter will not be resolved at the informal level, we emphasize early and ongoing strategy involvement of our Litigation Department, which has extensive experience in handling employment and workers' compensation matters.

The following are among our services:
