On March 12, 2008, Governor Deval L. Patrick signed Executive Order #499 establishing the Joint Enforcement Task Force on the Underground Economy and Employee Misclassification. This Task Force is charged with coordinating the efforts of several state agencies to stamp out fraudulent employment activities and bring those workers under the protective umbrella of statutes and regulations that protect their rights and ensure a safe working environment. In addition, the Task Force will be working to bring those employers who skirt the laws of the Commonwealth into compliance and create a level playing field for all businesses to compete and contribute to the economic well-being of our state.
