    Product Description

    Our focus in employment litigation is very often on proving or disproving liability, rather than on the endgame—proving and recovering damages, or limiting them. This intermediate-level program helps plaintiffs’ counsel focus on how to lay the foundation for an award of significant damages, while assisting defense counsel in thinking about how to prevent an opponent from hitting it big, or at all.

    Learn practical tips to help you maximize and defend against employment damages in court and at the MCAD. Hear from leading employee-side and employer-side trial lawyers, as well as a sitting Superior Court judge, on the impact of the latest developments in the law on damages, including strategies for successfully advancing and rebuffing attorney argument as to specific monetary damage amounts (MGL c. 213 s. 13B). Fine tune your skills for your next employment case—with an eye toward realizing your client’s litigation goal—from start to finish.
