Please join us for an informative breakfast briefing on “Navigating the Maze of Massachusetts Wage Law,” as a follow-up to the recent release of our third edition book, Massachusetts Peculiarities: An Employer’s Guide to Wage & Hour Law in the Bay State. Employers often focus on complying with federal wage and hour requirements, forgetting that Massachusetts has many of its own labyrinthine rules.  This session will highlight the Massachusetts wage and hour laws that differ most from federal laws, and will provide you with tools to identify the policies and practices potentially exposing your Massachusetts business to compliance and litigation risks that may be significantly reduced or avoided altogether. Some of the specific topics to be covered include:

  • The latest on Massachusetts Pay Equity law obligations;
  • A review of the unique Massachusetts laws regarding timing of pay, deductions from wages, and other payroll requirements
  • Insights into the Massachusetts Attorney General’s initiatives in the last year on independent contractors and earned sick leave laws

We will also discuss recent and expected future developments that will continue to add to the complexity of the wage and hour laws in Massachusetts.
