Massachusetts Notices (Posting): What you need to know

Massachusetts requires that all employers post several notices in the workplace informing employees of their rights and obligations under various employment laws. The notices must be placed conspicuously and in enough places to be easily seen by employees as they enter and exit the workplace and, in some cases, where they can be seen by applicants for employment.

Child labor. Employers of minors are required to post a notice stating, for each shift, the maximum daily hours each employee is required or permitted to work, the beginning and ending hours of work, and the daily meal periods. The notice must be posted in every room in which minors are employed, and it may not be changed after the beginning of work on the first day of the week without the written consent of the attorney general (MA Gen. Laws Ch. 149 Sec. 56, Sec. 74, Sec. 75).
Discrimination. Covered employers, including contractors on public works, must post a notice explaining the provisions of the Fair Employment Practices Act (MA Gen. Laws Ch. 151B Sec. 7). A copy of the poster can be downloaded at http://www.mass.gov/mcad.

Under the Act Relative to Domestic Violence, public and private employers with more than 50 employees must allow workers affected by domestic violence to take up to 15 days of leave in any 12-month period in order to attend to circumstances closely related to the abusive behavior. Covered employers are required to notify employees of their rights and responsibilities under the law (MA Gen. Laws Ch. 6 Sec. 116A et seq.).
