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.

Recent updates:

  • Update: August 2017

    Dear Subscriber:

    Thank you for updating your reference library with the 2017 supplement to the 2015 edition of Massachusetts Employment Law.

    The supplement features updates in thirty-two of the two-volume book's chapters. Analysis and notes on court decisions and new and amended laws and regulations in this fast-changing practice area bring you up-to-speed on recent developments. Fifteen checklists on a variety of topics serve as fast daily practice aids.

    New Chapter 16A focuses on gender identity discrimination. Gender identity discrimination was previously addressed in Chapter 16, but has been expanded to its own chapter for the 2017 supplement.

    We at MCLE trust that you will find the updates included in this supplement useful in your law practice and in keeping your law library current. Thank you for your continued support.

    Cordially,

    Alexis J. LeBlanc, Esq., MCLE Publications Attorney
