Discrimination Reviews Expanded

Alleged victims of discrimination who must file claims with state discrimination agencies might have a new weapon to use, says the labor and employment law group at Warner & Stackpole, Boston, Mass. The Massachusetts Supreme Court has ruled that someone who loses a discrimination claim before the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination has the right to have the caseand all its evidence and testimonyreviewed by the state's highest court. Claimants had previously been allowed to seek a judicial review only if they had decided not to have the commission hear the case to its end. The ruling affects only companies in Massachusetts, but is likely to spread to other jurisdictions.
