Massachusetts Law Review
Special Issue: Employment
This issue of the Massachusetts Law Review is devoted entirely to employment topics: employment retaliation claims, exceptions to the at-will employment doctrine, recent developments and trends in employee noncompetition agreements, an analysis of the changing burdens of proof in discrimination cases, and a comment on Knight v. Avon Products, in which the Supreme Judicial Court held that an age discrimination plaintiff must prove that her replacement was "substantially younger." Regardless of whether we practice employment law per se, employment issues affect all of us as employers or employees. Therefore, the Editorial Board of the Law Review thought that an all-employment issue would be of interest to the members of the bar and useful both inside and outside of the practice of law.
