Labor & Employment Section Council open meeting

Featuring Massachusetts Secretary of
Labor and Workforce Development Joanne F. Goldstein

Tuesday, Jan. 8, noon-1:30 p.m.
MBA, 20 West St., Boston

All section members are invited to attend this open meeting sponsored by the Labor & Employment Section Council. The guest speaker will be Secretary of Labor and Workforce Development Joanne F. Goldstein. Goldstein will be discussing the recent investigation of the Marriott Copley renovation, which led to numerous fines stemming from wage/hour violations.

Goldstein will also discuss the Joint Task Force on the Underground Economy and its role in such investigations and plans for introducing legislation expanding the reach of the state's wage and hour laws.

Goldstein oversees the commonwealth's five labor and workforce regulatory agencies: the Departments of Unemployment Assistance, Career Services, Labor Standards, Industrial Accidents and Labor Relations. She also manages the Joint Task Force on the Underground Economy and Employee Misclassification, working with the officials in the Patrick-Murray Administration and across state government to combat workplace fraud and protect exploited workers.

Goldstein was appointed to Gov. Deval L. Patrick's Cabinet in January 2010, and is one of the five cabinet members who work across agency and department lines to spur economic growth and job creation.
