Damages for Retaliation under the Massachusetts Wage Act

The Massachusetts Wage Act protects employees' right to receive timely payment of their wages. The law requires that employers generally must pay employees weekly or bi-weekly wages within six or seven days of the end of the pay period, depending upon the number clock-1241088-640x480-300x225.jpgof days in the week the employee worked. G. L. c. 149, § 148. Employers are prohibited from penalizing employees who assert their rights under the wage and hour provisions of the Wage Act. G. L. c. 149, § 148A. An employee who suffers a violation of § 148 or § 148A may file an action for an injunction, damages incurred, lost wages, and other benefits after filing a complaint with the attorney general and waiting 90 days or obtaining the attorney general's permission to file sooner. G. L. c. 149, § 150.
