There are no federal or Massachusetts laws regarding the maximum temperature in the workplace although it cannot be a health hazard. While hot, 100 degrees probably does not meet constitute a health hazard. Massachusetts does require sufficient heat for the winter months and has regulations setting ranges for various types of workplace locations.
