Filled with step-by-step guidance, coverage of important case law, and practical tips, this comprehensive manual will ensure you have the resources you need to recognize the issues and plan an effective course of action for your client.
Update: January 2020
Thank you for updating your reference library with the 2020 revised edition of Massachusetts Employment Law.
This 2020 edition brings together all of MCLEs core employment law resources in one title. New topics covered include
- understanding the Massachusetts independent contractor law,
- pursuing employment-related claims at the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination, and
- working with a plaintiff-client on a wrongful termination claim.
Topics previously separated into different chapters offering employee-perspective and employer-perspective guidance are now combined into one for faster research. Additionally, throughout the book you will find expert guidance on new cases and statutes affecting your daily practice.
We at MCLE hope that you will continue to find Massachusetts Employment Law to be a valuable resource. Thank you for your continued support.
