Welcome to The Management-Side Lawyer, a new source for employers (and anyone else who may be interested) to find useful information concerning labor and employment-law issues. Navigating the minefield of state and federal labor and employment laws is a daunting task. One wrong step and an employer can find itself in serious trouble. My goal is to help guide employers through this minefield by providing updates and insight into the latest changes in laws affecting the workplace and employer/employee relationships. Since I’m based in Boston, a good portion of the information on this site will concern Massachusetts law, but I’ll also address relevant federal issues that impact employers regardless of where they’re located.

I welcome your feedback. If you see something you like, I’d love to hear about it. On the flip side, if you disagree with something, please don’t hesitate to let me know about that as well. Maybe we can begin a dialogue that enlightens us all.
