I work in retail as an Assistant Store Manager being paid hourly. Since I was hired there have been 8 or more employees at my store. I work every Sunday, but my fellow hourly paid workers and I are not paid Time and One Half pay on Sundays. I've looked at the Mass Blue laws site as well as the Attorney General's site. When I went to my boss with this he called the Attorney General's office and claims he was told that in order for a business to be obligated to pay Time and One Half pay on Sundays, 8 or more employees must work on any given day during the week. The way I have come to understand it is that a business must only employ at least 8 workers during the week and not that at least 8 employees work on the same day.
I e-mailed the AG's office because I will obviously need it in writing if I go to my boss again but they refuse to reply with any info and ask that I call their hotline. Can someone please clarify this law for me. Also, If I am correct can somebody guide me to where I can get it in writing.
