Recent SJC Wage & Hour Decisions: Coverall, Rosnov and Camara

Wednesday, October 26, 2011 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA


This year, the SJC has issued three decisions interpreting provisions of the Massachusetts Wage Act. In Coverall, the Supreme Judicial Court addressed the scope of available damages under the Independent Contractor statute. In Rosnov, the Court ruled on the retroactive application of the 2008 amendment to the Wage Act, which mandated treble damages. In Camara, the SJC examined whether an employer may deduct wages in lieu of discipline. Two experienced litigators will explain the decisions and discuss their implications for employers and workers in the Commonwealth. Participants are encouraged to ask questions.
