Labor & Employment Open Luncheon Roundtable Discussion


REPORT: Improving Workplace Conditions Through Strategic Enforcement

         In 2010, a team led by Economics Professor David Weil of the Boston University School of Management issued a report, which was commissioned by the United States Department of Labor, Wage and Hour Division, entitled “Improving Workplace Conditions Through Strategic Enforcement.”  The Report has been embraced by both the DOL Wage and Hour Division and by the Office of the Massachusetts Attorney General and has caused a seismic shift in the way those enforcement agencies approach wage and hour enforcement. 

        The Labor and Employment Section Council invites its section members to a  discussion of the far-reaching impact of this little understood Report.

        The panelists include George Rioux , District Director of the DOL Wage and Hour Division, Jocelyn Jones, Deputy Chief of the Massachusetts Attorney General’s Fair Labor Division, Merle Hyman, DOL Wage and Hour Counsel and  Jeffrey F. Webb, Chief of the AG’s Fair Labor Division.

  The panel will be moderated by John Tocci of Tocci, Goss & Lee, P.C.
