SJC Holds LLC Managers May Be Personally Liable Under MA Wage Act

July 24, 2013

The Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court (“SJC”) recently ruled in Cook v. Patient EDU, LLC, et al. (SJC-11272) that language in the Massachusetts Wage Act imposing personal liability on officers and agents of a “corporation” applies equally to managers of a limited liability company (“LLC”). In doing so, the SJC rejected a Superior Court decision reaching the opposite conclusion. This Employment Law Alert addresses the case Cook v. Patient EDU, LLC, et al. (SJC-11272), SJC’s decision and what this means for employers.
