One thing Massachusetts employers must understand is that you are free to do as you see fit with your employees. You can let them go for any reason, at any time, with or without cause. An employer does not need to be concerned about lawsuits as long as they have covered these three basic areas:
- Be sure your employees do not have contracts.
- Make sure you don’t discriminate against your employees. You need to look at how a worker was treated and whether or not he or she has made prior claims of discrimination. If they have made claimes, be careful, retaliation is a viable cause for action.
- Pay them all wages they have earned and all money owed to them immediately.
