BOSTON, MA—Morgan, Brown & Joy attorney Catherine Scott presented on the Massachusetts Continuing Legal Education (MCLE) program, “Proving Employment Discrimination & Retaliation: Issue-Spotting & Tracking Evidence,” on November 16, 2023.
Scott, along with fellow program faculty, discussed the key aspects of discrimination and retaliation law under Title VII and G.L. c. 151B and types of pretext evidence to be on the lookout for. Speakers covered strategies to approach proving claims or defenses—both at the agency level at the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination (MCAD) and the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), as well as in court. Panelists also provided insights on how to preserve, collect, and organize evidence of discrimination—particularly electronic evidence, at all stages of a case.
Scott is a litigator and labor and employment lawyer defending and advising employers.
