34:11-56a16. Approval or disapproval of report following public hearing; effective date of wage order
Within 10 days after the hearing the commissioner shall confer with the director and approve or disapprove the report of the wage board. If the report is disapproved the commissioner may resubmit the matter to the same wage board or to a new wage board. If the report is approved, the commissioner shall make a wage order which shall define minimum fair wage rates in the occupation or occupations as recommended in the report of the wage board and which shall include such proposed administrative regulations as the commissioner may deem appropriate to supplement the report of the wage board and to safeguard the minimum fair wage standards established. Such administrative regulations may include among other things, regulations defining and governing learners and apprentices, their rates, number, proportion or length of service; piece rates or their relations to time rates; overtime or part-time rates, bonuses or special pay for special or extra work; deductions for board, lodging, apparel or other items or services supplied by the employer; and other special conditions or circumstances excluding gratuities; and in view of the diversities and complexities of different occupations and the dangers of evasion and nullification, the commissioner may provide in such regulations without departing from the basic minimum rates recommended by the wage board such modifications or reductions of or addition to such rates in or for such special cases or classes of cases as those herein enumerated as the commissioner may find appropriate to safeguard the basic minimum rates established. Said wage order shall take effect upon expiration of 180 days from the date of the issuance of the order.
