What are the laws regarding wages/hours/benefits for employees?
Contact the Massachusetts Department of Occupational Safety at www.mass.gov/dos/mw/mw_faq.htm. Most Massachusetts employers are subject to both the federal and state minimum wage and overtime laws. For information about federal minimum wage and overtime laws, visit the Department of Labor's website at www.dol.gov/esa/whd.
In an effort to ensure fair competition and to ensure workers' rights are protected, the Attorney General both enforces the law and works to help Massachusetts employers understand their rights and responsibilities.
