For many Massachusetts residents, employment is not only about the salary, but also about the many benefits that employees receive. These benefits include such things as dental and health insurance, paid vacations and paid medical leave. Employees should never be reprimanded for using benefits or exercising rights to which they are entitled. Unfortunately, some employers in today's fast-paced world of business will retaliate against employees for taking advantage of these agreed-upon benefits. A man in another state was allegedly fired for using medical leave, and he has filed a wrongful termination lawsuit.
Discrimination in any form is not only wrong, but can have many profound and traumatic impacts on victims. Unfortunately, discrimination continues to happen in today's society, but it is often illegal when it happens in the workplace. In Massachusetts laws exist to protect employees from workplace discrimination, but it still happens. A worker in another state recently filed a lawsuit after he was allegedly discriminated against because of his skin color.
Full time employees in Massachusetts and across the United States are protected by established rights and laws. Full time employment is not only about pay but also about benefits that come with employment. Their benefits typically include health and dental insurance, paid time off, as well as paid medical leave that can be used when workers suffer a significant injury that may prevent them from working. What can be done when an employee is terminated for using medical leave? This allegedly happened to a woman in another state and she has filed a lawsuit, claiming wrongful termination.

Workers in Massachusetts and all across the country have a right to speak up about concerns in the workplace without fear of retaliation.
