Are you aware that the Commonwealth of Massachusetts follows the employment at-will doctrine? This means that either party can enter or end a working relationship at any time, for any reason, and with or without advance notice. However, employers are bound to abide anti-discrimination laws that protect employees from mistreatment based on race, gender, sexual orientation, and other characteristics. The courts also protect an employee who has been fired for asserting legal rights and doing what the law requires. This includes protecting an employee who participates in whistle-blowing activities or reporting a co-worker’s unlawful behavior. Employees are also protected from being fired when a company is trying to avoid wage payments.

Other forms of wrongful termination include:
  • Being fired while on pregnancy or medical leave
  • Being retaliated against after filing a sexual harassment or discrimination complaint
  • Being retaliated against for complaining about some unlawful workplace practice
  • Being sexually harassed
  • Being discriminated against or fired because of your race, age, sex, ethnicity, religion, pregnancy, sexual orientation or disability
  • Not being compensated for overtime
  • Not given lunch breaks or rest breaks
