In Massachusetts, terminated or fired employees have a number of very important legal rights. Massachusetts employment law entitles a fired or terminated employee to compensation for wages you have already earned, vacation time, and any compensation or severance pay you are entitled. In addition,Massachusetts employment law also entitles a fired or terminated employee to continue their health insurance, and unemployment benefits if you qualify. If an employer fails to comply with these requirements they can be subject to strict sanctions and fines.
If you are an employee who was recently termination or fired, or are a business owner in Massachusetts who has recently terminated or fired an employee, please contact Massachusetts employment lawyer Michael P. Doherty for an initial consultation.
