WEBINAR: Court rules in personnel records act case: What does it mean for employers?


The state’s highest court has ruled that an employee’s exercise of his rights under the state’s Personnel Records Act can serve as the basis of a suit alleging wrongful discharge. The plaintiff in the case before the court was on a performance plan. He submitted a rebuttal, as is permitted under G.L.c. 149, §52C. He was fired the same day.

Partner Lisa Zaccardelli, chair of our Labor & Employment group, will join a Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly panel to discuss §52C, analyze the decision’s impact on employers, and offer advice on how businesses should proceed.
