Skoler, Abbott & Presser regularly defends employers in administrative actions brought before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“EEOC”), the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination (“MCAD”), the Connecticut Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities (“CHRO”), the U.S. Department of Labor (“DOL”), the Massachusetts Attorney Generals’ Office (“AGO”), and many other federal and state administrative agencies across the country.  We fight for you at the administrative stage to get your case dismissed, which deters claimants from pursuing civil lawsuits against you.
