Phillips & Garcia, P.C. of Dartmouth, MA has filed a lawsuit in Massachusetts Superior Court against Tractor Supply Company of Tennessee for failing to pay full time workers time and a half on Veteran’s Day and Columbus Day and for failing to pay part time workers time and a half for hours worked on all Massachusetts holidays. The lawsuit, filed on behalf of a Pittsfield employee, seeks a change in Tractor Supply Company’s policies and procedures, as well as the payment of three times the unpaid wages. Tractor Supply Company has 14 stores in Massachusetts.
Under the Massachusetts Wage Act, Massachusetts law mandates that employees who work on a Massachusetts recognized holiday be paid “premium pay” of one and a half times their regular pay. In Massachusetts, employers must pay time and a half to all employees, regardless of whether they are full time or part time employees, for hours worked on the following Massachusetts legal holidays: New Year’s Day, Columbus Day, Veteran’s Day, Memorial Day, Labor Day and Independence Day.
If you were not paid “premium pay” on a Massachusetts recognized holiday, you can fill out a contact form here to make a Wage Act complaint to Phillips & Garcia, P.C. or simply call us at 508-998-0800.
