Notes of Decisions

   Wage Payment & Collection Law

   There is no requirement in the Wage Payment and Collection Law, act of July 14, 1961 (P. L. 637) that the Department of Labor promulgate standards or regulations to aid the Secretary of Labor in exercising the conferred discretionary authority; thus, this law is not unconstitutional because there are no standards contained therein to guide the Department’s discretion in determining whether to order the posting of a bond. Gwynedd Development Group, Inc. v. Department of Labor and Industry, 666 A.2d 365 (Pa. Cmwlth. 1995); appeal granted 675 A.2d 1220 (Pa. 1996); appeal dismissed 672 A.2d 1318 (Pa. 1996).
