The Massachusetts Office of the Attorney General has made a mandatory change to the state's Wage and Hour Laws posting.
The posting more prominently displays the 2017 minimum wage of $11 per hour and hourly service rate of $3.75. In addition, information about the state's minimum wage and overtime laws has been reworded and the poster now includes information about:
- Reporting pay
- Rights of temporary workers
- Rights of domestic workers
- Public works and public construction workers
- Domestic violence leave
Employers must display a notice that includes both the minimum wage and other provisions of minimum wage law and regulations as required by the state. Because information has been added, a new poster is required.
The Massachusetts Employment Law poster from J.J. Keller & Associates, Inc., will be updated with the revised posting.
NOTE: If you have subscribed to the Update Service for Massachusetts, you will automatically receive the new version of the poster.
