Attorney Morte has successfully handled numerous cases involving discrimination based on pregnancy, sex, age, disability or national origins.
A sampling of these cases that Attorney Morte has resolved or is presently working on one of the following:
- A case where a woman was terminated working for a national known company, after she became pregnant and complained that she was being placed on a Personal Improvement Plan simply because she was a woman and pregnant.
- A case where a woman was being sexually harassed by her supervisor who repeatedly asked her for sexual favors.
- A man who was a whistleblower against a utility company that was falsely reporting statistics to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
- Cases involving the wage and hour laws which allow for a trebling of damages plus Attorney’s fee where the employer fails to pay wages or overtime in accordance with the law.
These cases can involve situations where an employer attempts to classify an employee as an independent contractor to save on taxes and overtime, or cases where the employer simply fails to pay wages on a timely basis.
Attorney Morte has also represented large and small companies as it pertains to employment laws including claims for wrongful discharge, wage and hour violations and sex discrimination.
