HRW Client Alert: What Employers Need to Know About the Updated Veterans Laws in Massachusetts

By    September 20, 2016

On July 14, 2016, Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker signed into law An Act Relative to Housing, Operations, Military Service, and Enrichment (the “HOME Act”).

By amending several existing laws, the HOME Act provides additional support and protections for veterans, members of the Armed Services, and their families. Employers should be aware of two major changes in employment law brought about by the HOME Act, both of which went into effect when the law was signed by Governor Baker and may require changes to your policies, practices, or employee handbook. For more information click here to download a copy of our full alert.

Thank you for reaching out to contact Hirsch Roberts Weinstein LLP (“the Firm”). Before you send your message, we wanted to make sure you are aware of the following. Please do not send any confidential information in response to this link. Sending an e-mail to the Firm or any of its attorneys does not give rise to an attorney-client relationship, and will not be deemed to disqualify the Firm from undertaking any engagement for a current or future client. Before any attorney-client engagement may be formed, the Firm will need to check for possible conflicts of interest, you will need to consider whether you wish to retain the Firm as counsel, and we will need to consider whether we wish to accept the potential engagement. In the meantime, the Firm reserves the right to represent parties with interests adverse to you.
