Foley Hoag Launches Blog to Focus on Massachusetts Labor and Employment Law Issues

Will feature insight from attorneys within firm’s Labor & Employment Law Practice

January 5, 2016

Wage and hour laws, benefits issues, and discrimination will be among the topics discussed on Foley Hoag LLP’s recently launched Massachusetts Labor & Employment Law blog.

Authored by lawyers in the firm’s Labor & Employment Law Practice, the blog will examine points of employment law and how they apply to operating a business in Massachusetts. The blog’s authors will also tackle perennial issues such as the legality of unpaid internships and historic events in labor and employment law like the implementation of Massachusetts’ new earned sick time law.

The blog’s primary authors are:

  • Robert A. Fisher, partner and deputy chair of the firm's Labor and Employment Law Department. Rob represents employers in all aspects of labor and employment law, including union disputes, discrimination/harassment claims, wage and hour disputes, benefits issues and contractual claims.
  • Christopher Feudo, associate. Chris defends clients against discrimination and harassment claims, represents clients in union, wage and hour and contractual disputes, and counsels clients regarding personnel matters.

Foley Hoag’s Labor and Employment Law Practice has decades of experience helping employers manage the ever-expanding array of state and federal employment laws. The practice serves local and national clients in manufacturing, technology, life sciences, retail, financial services, energy and clean technology, construction, staging, professional sports, education and government.
