In January 2014, Inga Bernstein was quoted in a Boston Globe article discussing the Commonwealth’s attempts to keep secret settlement and severance agreements between it and its employees. The article reads in part:
“Boston employment lawyer Inga Bernstein said she was glad the courts ruled that government settlements can no longer be kept secret, because she thought it would expose important problems.
‘We expect [government employers] to follow the rules,’ said Bernstein, a partner at Zalkind Duncan & Bernstein LLP. ‘And when the rules haven’t been followed they should correct them.
‘It seems to me that should be part of good government.’”
