Experienced Lawyers On Your Side

Cases involving wrongful termination and lay-offs are brought under the Massachusetts Fair Employment Practices Act. Our attorneys have extensive experience representing employees who have been fired laid off, wrongfully terminated, sexually harassed, or subjected to a hostile work environment because of discrimination or because of other unfounded reasons. Discrimination based upon age, gender, race, color, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, pregnancy or disability or handicap is illegal. Of course, discrimination is not always the motive behind every wrongful termination. Sometimes, workers are unjustifiably let go for other reasons such as breach of an employment contract, retaliation for whistleblower complaints or for reporting discrimination or illegal conduct, or to deprive them of a bonus or commission, and the attorneys at Lowrie & Andrew Attorneys at Law can advise and assist you with problems such as these.

Employment Law Contracts

Lowrie & Andrew Attorneys at Law also handles contract review and negotiations for employees. Contact us for assistance with the following:

Unemployment Claims

The Division of Unemployment Assistance (DUA) grants or denies unemployment benefits. If you have been denied benefits, one of our lawyers can represent you in a hearing or appeal. We also assist people who are owed wages, accrued vacation pay and other reimbursement the employer is refusing to provide.

Our firm can protect your rights and help you fight back against the unjust actions of your employer. Contact us today to schedule your free initial consultation.
