Wage and Hour Employment Litigation Attorneys in Boston, Massachusetts
Massachusetts employees are protected by some of the strongest timely payment of wages law in the Nation. Employers are required to timely pay employees. Terminated employees must be paid in full (including accrued benefits) for all earned wages on the day of termination. Even a direct deposit the day after termination is untimely and requires the employer to then pay three times the amount of the detained wages, plus reasonable legal fees. Owed $10,000 on the day of termination, or within a month of doing the work and not paid? Employer now automatically owes you $30,000, plus legal fees.

Stefan represents employees that have been wrongfully denied wages and other benefits protected by state and federal law.

In late 2022, he served as lead trial counsel in a single-client wage detention case tried before a federal jury, which returned a verdict of $85,000 in his client employee’s favor that should be trebled under applicable law with the costs of litigation and reasonably attorneys’ fees also shifted to the employer.
