Employment laws at both the federal and state level regulate the employer-employee relationship in a number of ways, including wages and hiring practices. While federal laws set a base-level for employee rights, many states offer additional worker protections. Massachusetts employment laws include whistleblower protections for public employees, which protect workers who report unsafe or illegal activity from retaliation, and so-called "right to work" laws that prohibit union membership as a condition of employment. Additional laws establish legal holidays, the minimum wage, pay day requirements, and other conditions of employment. Click on a link below to learn more.
