Wage and hour enforcement, as well as enforcement of child labor laws, is a priority for the Attorney General's Office, as we work to ensure that minimum wage laws are upheld throughout the state.

As of January 1, 2008, the minimum wage in Massachusetts is set at $8.00 per hour ( M.G.L. chapter 151, sections 1 and 2). All employers who employ minimum wage employees are required to hang the wage and hour poster, updated in June 2008, in the workplace, in locations such as lunch rooms, lobbies, human resources offices, or anywhere else that employees congregate regularly.

This poster is available in English, Spanish, and Portuguese. To download and view an updated wage and hour poster:
