Employment evaluations or score cards

The compnay I work for is in the process of “top grading’ its employees, using a scorecard for each of us. They are publishing the results of our “scores” with our names included. Is this legal??

Hmm, doesn't sounds right.  I cannot make a complete determination but you may wish to review the following and then try www.attorneypages.com to locate a plaintiff's labor law/employment law attorney in Massachusetts. Then check his or her record at the Massachusetts State Bar.
