Small Businesses May Be Liable for Employment Discrimination

Last month in Thurdin v. SEI Boston, 452 Mass. 436 (Oct. 24, 2008), the Mass. Supreme Judicial Court held that an employee of a business with fewer than six employees (who is thus unable to sue under MGL c.151B) can sue for sex discrimination under a provision of the the Massachusetts Equal Rights Act (MGL c.93, s.102).
