Attorneys Carolyn Hunt and Jill Havens met 15+ years ago while attending Northeastern School of Law. They were both involved in social justice causes in law school and both graduated with a desire to help people and fight for worker’s rights. After over a decade working for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Carolyn finally joined Jill’s law practice – the Law Office of Jill Havens – in 2022 to form a new law firm focused on securing justice for workers. And thus was the Workplace Justice Law Group formed.
With a combined 25+ years of experience, attorneys Carolyn Hunt and Jill Havens have the knowledge, skill and experience to tackle all manner of employment law claims on behalf of employees (and former employees). We work with clients in regards to unemployment issues, discrimination cases, sexual harassment cases, wage and hour claims, whistleblower claims, retaliation cases, severance agreement reviews, negotiating exit strategies from work, independent contractor misclassification issues, FMLA and Mass PFML and other leaves of absence, negotiating employment contracts, ADA and workplace accommodations, and wrongful termination.
We are not only knowledgeable attorneys in all areas of employment law and labor law – we have something that no other law firm has….. two attorneys who both worked within the Massachusetts Unemployment system. Because we both worked as lawyers for the Massachusetts Department of Unemployment Assistance (DUA), we know the unemployment system inside and out. Our unique experience and knowledge of unemployment issues in Massachusetts sets us apart from other employment lawyers. We have a proven record of securing thousands of dollars in benefits for hundreds of clients, by representing claimants in unemployment hearings, and sometimes via only an hour or two of a strategy session with one of us.
We serve clients in every corner of Massachusetts – from Berkshire County to Worcester County to Barnstable County and everywhere in between.
