The Attorney General’s Fair Labor Division protects workers from exploitation and sets a level playing field for employers. We enforce wage and hour, public construction, and child labor laws.
Who we serve
The Attorney General's Fair Labor Division ensures workers are paid the wages they are owed and that businesses that play by the rules don't get undercut by competitors who save costs at the expense of their workers. We ensure employers follow prevailing wage and public construction bid laws, so that tax dollars are spent on responsible employers who provide good jobs in Massachusetts. We also ensure employers follow child labor laws that protect young workers. We accomplish this work through robust enforcement, strong partnerships, and community education.
