MBBP has released a new Employment Law Advisor (ELA) which covers the topic of Sexual Harassment Policies in Massachusetts. Massachusetts law requires covered employers to adopt and distribute sexual harassment policies containing specific provisions. Beyond this legal requirement, the use of a well-crafted, properly disseminated policy, combined with other preventive efforts, can significantly reduce an employer’s exposure to harassment claims. This ELA discusses Massachusetts requirements for employers, drafting tips for sexual harassment policies and anti-harassment training.

This Employment Law Advisor can be found on our resources page. For more information on sexual harassment policies in Massachusetts, please contact our employment attorneys Bob Shea or Chris Perry.

If you would like to be added to our ELA mailing list, please contact Jaclyn Jefgood.

Giving Clean Energy Sector a Boost in Massachusetts 07/27/2009

We salute the Clean Energy Fellows, a program to help accelerate clean technology in Massachusetts and throughout New England, as they begin a year of learning and business networking toward the goal of better understanding of how to apply clean technology to local industries and businesses.

A project of the Clean Energy Council, the fellowship program addresses a simple but acute problem: a lack of repeat entrepreneurs in the sector — a critical ingredient in venture formation, funding, and growth — by offering entrepreneurs from other sectors an intensive, half-time, semester-length, clean energy program to accelerate their transition into the sector.

Mass. High Tech published a nice article that follows up on last year’s crop of fellows — including MBBP client Steve Kropper from WindPole Ventures, to answer the obvious question… “Where are they now?” See the article here: Following the first Clean Energy Fellows
