In addition there is a large number of laws which also directly or indirectly affect labor and these are given, classified by subjects, in the second group.

The texts are given as in the Consolidated Laws of 1909 and succeeding years, as amended. References are given to all such amendments. For references to the sources, both original acts and amendments, of the various provisions as enacted in the Consolidated Laws, see a similar compilation in the Annual Report of the Commissioner of Labor for 1909 (Appendix VI).

In notes are given cross references to laws, and references to court decisions or opinions of the Attorney-General construing the laws. The latter may be found in the reports of the Attorney-General or in the reports of the Commissioner of Labor for the years indicated.
