CLIENT ALERT: Massachusetts Attorney General Updates Minimum Wage Poster

All Massachusetts employers who employ minimum wage employees are required to hang a wage and hour poster in the workplace, in locations such as lunch rooms, lobbies, human resources offices, or anywhere else that employees congregate regularly.   In June 2008, the Massachusetts Attorney General updated the required poster to reflect the increase in the Massachusetts’ Basic Minimum Wage, which rose to $8.00 per hour on January 1, 2008.
This poster is available in both English and Spanish.  To print a current state minimum wage poster, please visit the Attorney General’s website at (English) and (Spanish).
Employers must remember that they are required to post various types of workplace posters.  For more information on this alert, or on an employer’s general obligation to post workplace information, please contact your MBJ attorney.
