BOSTON — A Boston beauty salon chain has agreed to pay about $45,740 to settle charges by the Massachusetts Attorney General's Office of not paying earned sick time to employees.
According to the Attorney General's Office, MiniLuxe, which operates 15 stores in the state, violated Massachusetts' earned sick time law by not having an earned sick time policy.
“Workers need access to paid time off in order to take care of themselves and their loved ones,” Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey said in a statement. “I am pleased that, as a result of this investigation, MiniLuxe has paid back its staff, implemented a new earned sick time policy and agreed to educate workers about their rights to sick leave.”
MiniLuxe will pay the compensation to 312 current and former employees and has agreed to post information at all its locations regarding the state's earned sick time law and also include information in materials given to new employees, Healey's Office said.
