Legal Alert: Last Employer Left in Massachusetts Turn Out the Lights...


Massachusetts employers may soon find themselves facing a significant increase in state wage and hour lawsuits in the wake of legislation that became law earlier this week. The new law makes treble damages (that is, three times the amount of lost wages or other benefits) mandatory if an employer is found to have violated the state?s wage and hour laws, even if the violation was inadvertent. This includes the state?s wage payment and overtime and minimum wage laws.
