If you believe you have been treated unfairly based on your age, gender identity, race, color, national origin, religion, disability, or sexual orientation, you may have a viable legal claim as a member of a “protected class” under Massachusetts law. We can assist you in filing a complaint with the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination (“MCAD”), which is required before a lawsuit can be filed.
The MCAD complaint must be filed within 300 days of the last discriminatory act. A complainant may later decide to have the case removed to court as long the case has been with the MCAD for at least 90 days. If the MCAD case reaches the hearing phase, and the administrative judge finds in the claimant’s favor, the claimant may decide to accept the MCAD’s findings and not file suit in court.
Let us know the facts and circumstances of your situation. We will evaluate the viability of your claim and let you know your options. If we believe your case is meritorious, we will help you through the MCAD process and, if necessary, litigation. Either way, we will fight to win your case and maximize any recoverable damages.
