Virtual Legal Helpline – provided by Seyfarth Shaw, LLP
Employment Law information for HR practitioners in response to questions submitted by a NEHRA member. To utilize the Employment Law Center, visit our membership benefits access page to obtain the contact information for a Seyfarth attorney. *Please note: Due to malpractice and conflict reasons, Seyfarth Shaw cannot provide legal advice.

This valuable benefit provides NEHRA members with information and answers to questions including:

  • Clarification of current New England employment laws, regulations and legal trends
  • General information about how the law impacts HR practices
  • Examples of typical Employment Law Center questions:
  • How frequently must employees in Massachusetts be paid?
  • If an employee fails to return from FMLA leave, can I terminate his/her employment?
  • Can an employer proscribe an employee's off duty conduct? For example, can we prevent an employee from moonlighting on the weekends or from smoking outside of work?
  • We have operations in MA, RI and CT. What is the minimum wage in each state? Can we require employees to work on Sunday in those states? Do we have to pay a premium or overtime rate for Sunday work?
  • We are considering hiring unpaid college interns. Is this permissible?
  • What should be included in an employee's personnel file?

The Virtual Legal Helpline does not provide legal advice or legal opinions on any specific facts or circumstances. The helpline operates as a Q&A resource, rather than a library.
