Recent Changes to Massachusetts Wage and Hour Law (Boston, MA)

On December 12, 2005, Daniel Field will be among a panel of local experts speaking on the topic of recent developments in Massachusetts Wage and Hour Law.

In the past year, Massachusetts has seen several significant changes to the law regarding the compensation of employees. Every Massachusetts employment lawyer should understand the new legal landscape in this area – whether to help employers avoid costly mistakes or to help employees receive all of the compensation to which they are legally entitled.

This seminar will provide a practical update regarding Massachusetts wage and hour law, including:
·  The SJC’s Wiedmann decision;
·  The scope of the Payment of Wages Act;
·  The strict new rules for distinguishing employees from independent contractors; and
·  When wage and hour claims can be asserted via a class action.
