Real Employment Law Assistance
The Legislature instructed that G. L. c. 151B “shall be construed liberally for the accomplishment of its purposes.” G. L. c. 151B, § 9.
When it comes to the workplace, everyone should be treated fairly, safely and respectfully. Unfortunately, that is not always the case. In many instances, employees are fired without cause and are given a pretextual “cause” for their termination.
Some of the time those terminations are discriminatory, and the law provides remedies for such discriminatory firings. There are a variety of issues that can arise, and Kavaja Law is here to help you demand legal action. We assist clients throughout Massachusetts with a wide range of employment law matters.

Something Feels Wrong – Do You Know Your Employment Rights?
One challenge for many employees is fully understanding their rights in the workplace. There are a great number of laws in Massachusetts, at both the state and federal levels, that govern the workplace. It can be confusing to know which ones may apply to your specific circumstance.
For instance, some of the potentially applicable laws include:
- Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Title VII)
- The Rehabilitation Act of 1973
- The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA)
- The Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 (ADEA)
- The Equal Pay Act of 1963 (EPA)
- The Pregnancy Discrimination Act
- Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)
- A wide variety of Massachusetts-specific laws that govern wage and hours, breaks, pregnancy, Sunday hours, travel time and even heating requirements of some workplaces.
Additionally, there is a large body of regulatory law from the U.S. Department of Labor and agencies such as the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) that govern further matters like workplace safety. There are also numerous Massachusetts agencies with more regulations.
