Fair Wage Compliance Certificate (PDF) - The Northampton License Commission, when issuing a new license or a renewal, requires certification of compliance with wage and hour laws. Each licensee must certify that they are not subject to a federal or state criminal or civil judgment, administrative citation or final administrative determination resulting from a violation of MGL Ch. 149, Ch. 151, or the Fair Labor Standards Act. Any licensee who does not certify to the above will be required to provide a wage bond prior to issuance of said license.
