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.
