Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly Features Jon Friedmann and Adam Shafran in Employment Case of First Impression

Posted on

The Supreme Judicial Court ruled that employees who brought a successful class action against their employer for violation of the Wage Act are entitled to statutory pre-judgment interest on their lost pay and benefits. This case of first impression, argued by Jon Friedmann and Adam Shafran, answers an unsettled question of law and employers now have clarity about their obligations for interest under the Wage Act. The ruling could promote faster settlement of Wage Act claims because it may impact an employer’s decision about how long they want to defend a wage dispute before settling the case.
