Complying With Massachusetts State Wage and Hour Laws

Make sure you are in compliance with Massachusetts' wage and hour laws. Although many Massachusetts employers understand the basic minimum wage and overtime laws under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), they are less familiar with the nuances of their state's wage and hour laws. Although there are similarities, there are some important differences and the failure to recognize the pitfalls can result in significant liability to the employer even for unintended but technical mistakes. This content will teach you how to recognize important wage and hour issues impacting Massachusetts employers so you can confidently manage common issues that arise. This information is critical for human resources professionals, executives, business owners, managers, attorneys, and payroll administrators who are responsible for ensuring wage and hour compliance in their workplaces.
