David Russcol Files Amicus Brief in Support of Government Employees Subjected to Illegal Discrimination and Retaliation

David Russcol has filed an amicus brief in the Massachusetts Appeals Court on behalf of the Massachusetts Employment Lawyers Association. Writing in support of the plaintiff in Brown v. Office of the Commissioner of Probation, he argued that government employees who prove that they have been illegally discriminated or retaliated against should collect interest until their claims are paid, just like private employees. The defendants have suggested that they are exempt from paying interest, in which case there would be no consequences to the government for delaying payment. David Russcol wrote in the brief that, under the strong Massachusetts anti-discrimination law, government employers should be held to the same standard as private companies, not a lower standard.
