Pay for a 30-Minute Meeting When it’s Not My Shift


Jeffrey Dretler was interviewed for the article “Pay for a 30-Minute Meeting When it’s Not My Shift.” Jeffrey provides insight on how the state’s reporting pay law comes into play when calculating whether some work is eligible for overtime.

He explains, “In Massachusetts, the reporting pay law provides that when an employee who is scheduled to work three or more hours reports for duty at the time set by the employer, and that employee is not provided with the expected hours of work, the employer must pay the employee for at least three hours of work at a rate not less than the minimum wage. The law does not apply to nonprofit institutions.”
