How do you know if you are being discriminated against in the workplace?
If you are a member of a protected class based on your race, ethnicity, religion, age, orientation, disability, national origin, or gender, and your employer or co-worker treats you disparately than similarly situated members of a different class of individuals, you may be the victim of discrimination. If you are disciplined more harshly, given lesser benefits, less salary, harassed, hostile environment, given less desirable work to do, or receive discriminatory statements on a regular basis, you might be the victim of discrimination. Your employer could be in violation of Massachusetts General Laws 151B, see http://malegislature.gov/Laws/GeneralLaws/PartI/TitleXXI/chapter151B or Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, see www.eeoc.gov/laws/statutes/titlevii.cfm
If you feel like you are being treated differently than similarly situated co-workers, those with same title, job status, or salary, and it might be because of something unrelated to job performance, you may want to consult with an attorney. There is no reason for you to put up with that type of conduct. A lawyer at Mann Law Firm P.C. can help you determine if your claims are meritorious, and if so, work with you to develop your claims to help you accomplish your goal of either freeing the workplace of discrimination or the discriminatory actor, or separating from the company and negotiating a severance package and separation agreement.
Mann Law Firm P.C. is a personal injury and litigation firm with a focus in Employment Law. We represent mostly individuals against their employers who have wrongfully terminated them, discriminated against them, wrongfully withheld wages, violated public policy, Americans With Disabilities claims, Federal Medical Leave Act violations, violations of good faith and fair dealing, and Whistleblower claims. We provide a free consultation, and if we determine your case is viable, we will request a personnel file from your employer and complete an investigation and analysis regarding your claims. We will then work with you to develop your claims and prepare and serve a demand letter on your employer where we bring to their attention the State and Federal rules they have violated, your damages, and your settlement demand. We will work tirelessly to negotiate a compensation package and separation agreement on your behalf. If we are not able to settle your claims against your employer we may file a Complaint on your behalf at the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination, the Trial Court, or the Federal Court. We will then litigate your case to Judgment, Mediate, or settle your claims, and collect funds for you. So at the end of the day you receive a settlement to help you bridge the gap to when you find your next job.
We will also try to ensure that the employer will not bad mouth you to prospective employers, get you a Confidentiality agreement, optimize your chances of obtaining unemployment benefits, and other ordinary separation terms, so that your interests are protected and that you can navigate through a precarious time when you are without income and scrambling to maintain your lifestyle.
I worked with Simon on a severence agreement. He was professional, got back to me quickly with my questions, and ultimately renegotiated in my favor. I highly recommend Simon!
My experience with the Mann Law Firm was positive from the first moment I consulted with Simon Mann. Simon Mann was attentive, thorough, and helpful throughout a very difficult time. Simon Mann was with me every step of the way with insight and compassion, always responding quickly and effectively with any questions or issues as they arose. I highly recommend the Mann Law Firm.
I worked with the firm and specifically with Tim on an employer issue and severance agreement negotiation. I was impressed with Timothy D. Rodden as being very professional and above anything else a realistic person. He would always focus on the matter and what can be done to resolve the issue rather than think of his fee. I highly recommend them for the employment related issues. Keep up the good work Tim! Thank you for your help!

Delivered the Results I Wanted
Simon Mann and Mann Law Firm, P.C. provided a comprehensive assessment of my case and pointed to several potential passages to deliver a result. Things had to be presented in a tactful way and often I was forced to be patient. The opportunity presented itself to leverage my case and win the result that I desired. They didn't know it at the beginning but through planning an preparation the chance presented itself and Simon was able to deliver. I have to give credit to him and his team for their experience lead to my successful outcome. Worth every penny and more!
Trustworthy, caring and effective
Mann Law represented me when I was pregnant and was discriminated against by a landlord who refused to remove lead paint. My husband and unborn son had to rent an inferior apartment next to a loud neighbor whose husband may have been dealing out of the unit. It was a nightmare. Mann Law and Attorney Simon Mann sued the landlord and brokerage and got me thousands of dollars that helped us save up to eventually buy our first home! Thank you Mann Law. I would recommend these guys to everybody. Awesome people and awesome law firm.

My case was resolved to my satisfaction. I made an excellent choice using Attorney Mann to represent me.
