The Massachusetts Appellate Court vacated a grant of summary judgment to an employer, finding the employees’ class action lawsuit claiming the business had failed to pay them “Sunday pay” was wrongly dismissed.

Employees of Bella Sante, a spa and salon, brought the suit contending the company had failed to pay them ”Sunday pay,” according to G. L. c. 136, § 6 (50), which prior to being phased out in 2023, had required certain employers that sold goods at retail to pay employees premium pay for hours worked on Sunday.
