Attorney David Dishman has been representing plaintiffs in civil litigation for thirty years with a concentration in employment law, class action, anti-trust and serious injury claims. He has also defended corporate clients against claims of negligence, breach of contract and careless oversight. Altogether, he has successfully represented 1,000+ clients in a wide variety of cases ranging from failing to pay commissions to complex issues of product safety and price fixing against large corporations.
Most recently Attorney Dishman has successfully brought class action lawsuits on behalf of exotic dancers against various strip clubs in Massachusetts for numerous violations of the law including: misclassification of employees as independent contractors; failure to pay minimum wage; failure to pay overtime; illegal tip sharing practices, and charging “house” and other fees. He was co-counsel in what is believed to be the largest class-action settlement brought by exotic dancers against an adult entertainment venue in New England.
Massachusetts employment laws carry strict civil penalties for violations by employers. Civil sanctions, including treble damages, may be available for: an employer’s failure to pay minimum wage or overtime; the misclassification of an employee as an “independent contractor;” and various “tip sharing” policies which requiring that tips be shared with management and other non-tipped employees.
