A. The Commissioner of Labor may enter into reciprocal agreements with the Labor Department or corresponding agency of another state, or with the person, board, officer, or commission authorized to act on behalf of that department or agency having jurisdiction for the collection of wages unlawfully withheld from employees by out-of-state employers and for the collection of other debts lawfully owed to the State Department of Labor.
B. The Commissioner of Labor shall, upon the written request of the Department of Labor or other corresponding agency of any other state or of any person, board, officer or commission of such state authorized to act for and on behalf of such labor department or corresponding agency, maintain actions in the courts of this state upon assigned claims for wages, judgments and demands arising in such other state in the same manner and to the same extent that such actions by the Commissioner of Labor are authorized when arising in this state; provided, however, that such actions may be commenced and maintained only in those cases where such other state by appropriate legislation or by reciprocal agreement extends a like comity to cases arising in the state.
