Labor (LAB)

Action by commissioner upon wage board report. When the wage board submits its report and recommendations to the commissioner, the commissioner shall forthwith file them with the secretary of the department. Within five days of their receipt, the commissioner shall publish a notice of such filing in at least ten newspapers of general circulation in the state. Any objections to the report and recommendations shall be filed with the commissioner within fifteen days after such publication. The commissioner may, if he deems it appropriate, order oral argument, which shall be scheduled before the commissioner, or such representative as he may designate, on five days' notice to the persons who have filed objections to the report and recommendations. Whether or not oral argument is scheduled, the commissioner shall by order accept or reject the board's report and recommendations within forty-five days after filing with the secretary of the department. The commissioner may by such order modify the regulations recommended by the board. Such order of the commissioner shall become effective thirty days after publication, in the manner prescribed in this section, of a notice of such order. The commissioner may, within such forty-five days, confer with the wage board, which may make such changes in its report or recommendations as it may deem fit. The commissioner also may, within such forty-five days, remand the matter to the board for such further proceeding as he may direct.
