MBBP has released a new Wage & Hour Tip of the Month which discusses the legal holidays in Massachusetts. Massachusetts law specifies the kind of work that is permitted on a holiday, and the type of establishment which can operate on a holiday. Generally, employers cannot operate on any legal holiday except New Year’s Day, Martin Luther King Day, President’s Day, Evacuation Day, Patriots Day, Bunker Hill Day, Columbus Day after 12 noon or Veterans Day after 1 p.m. However, employers may be able to operate on an otherwise restricted holiday if they come within one of the 55 statutorily proscribed exemptions.
