Who we serve

The Attorney General's Fair Labor Division ensures that workers are paid the wages they are owed and that businesses that play by the rules do not get undercut by competitors who save costs at the expense of their workers. We also ensure that 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 accomplish this work through robust enforcement, strong partnerships, and community education.
