On Tuesday, October 5, 2010, from 12:30 p.m. – 2:00 p.m., Martha Zackin will be speaking at a brown bag lunch with the Boston Bar Association, in Boston. The topic of the brown bag lunch will be “Changes to Personnel Records Statute.” The Massachusetts Personnel Records statute was recently amended to require employers to notify an employee within 10 days of any submission to a personnel record that reflects negatively on the employee. The amendment was part of a larger economic bill and was adopted with little fanfare.  This change has caused uncertainty amongst both management side lawyers and plaintiffs’ counsel.  Martha Zackin, along with Sharen Litwin, Kotin, Crabtree & Strong, LLP, will describe the potential impacts of the changes to the personnel record statute and provide practice pointers to counsel representing management and employees.
