Discrimination complaints in Mass. face years-long delaysPlay
The Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination handles complaints from people who feel they've been discriminated against at work. Maybe they were fired, or didn't get a promotion, for example.

We speak with Tom Murphy, a lawyer with the Disability Law Center, and WBUR reporter Simon Rios, who's been reporting on the delays.
