United States Supreme Court decisions regarding: ADEA coverage of state and local agencies; the Federal Arbitration Act (FAA) and exemption of "contracts of employment" from Section 1; FAA allows parties to assign arbitrability determination to arbitrator or court; arbitration agree­ments between employers and employees are enforceable.

Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court decisions regarding: WARN Act damages are not "wrongfully withheld earned wages" subject to Massachusetts Wage Act; police officers con­victed of criminal offenses not disqualified from receiving retirement benefits; denial of a lateral transfer can amount to "adverse employment action"  under  M.G.L.c.151B,  Section  4;  definition of "prevailing party" under the Massachusetts Wage Act; "Employee" definition under M.G.L.c.
