Andrew Botti to Speak at Merrimack Valley Chamber Event

McLane Middleton attorney Andrew P. Botti will be speaking at the Merrimack Valley Chamber of Commerce’s “HR in an Hour” event on July 17, 2018 in Andover, Mass.

As part of his presentation, Andrew will discuss the Equal Pay Act, including:

  • What is “comparable work”?
  • Which wage variations are legally allowed?
  • What can no longer be prohibited concerning wage discussions in the workplace
  • Remedies for violations
  • Affirmative legal defenses to claims
  • Written guidance by the Attorney General’s Office

 

In addition, Andrew will discuss what appears to be the first court case filed in the Commonwealth under the new law, which went into effect on July 1, 2018.

Andrew is a director in the firm’s litigation department.  He represents corporations, smaller businesses, and family owned and operated enterprises in complex business and employment-related issues. He advises management and business owners/operators on business disputes, shareholder issues, employee discrimination claims, and commercial litigation matters. 

Andrew was appointed to the Massachusetts Economic Development Planning Council by Governor Charlie Baker.  The Council's mission was to develop a written comprehensive economic development policy for Massachusetts, and construct a strategic plan for its implementation.  The plan was eventually signed into law by the Governor.

Andrew can be reached in the firm’s Woburn office at (781) 904-2692 or [email protected].
