    Sec. 7. Within ten days after such hearing the Department shall approve or disapprove the report of the wage board. If the report is disapproved the Department may resubmit the matter to the same wage board or to a new wage board. If the report is approved the Department shall make a directory order which shall define minimum fair wage rates in the occupation or occupations as recommended in the report of the wage board and which shall include such proposed administrative regulations deemed appropriate to implement or supplement report of the wage board and to safeguard the minimum fair wage standards established. Such administrative regulations may include among other things, regulations defining and governing learners and apprentices, their rates, number, proportion or length of services, piece rates or their relation to time rates, overtime or part time rates, bonuses or special pay for special or extra work, deductions for board, lodging, apparel or other items or services supplied by the employer and other special conditions or circumstances; and in view of the diversities and complexities of different occupations and the dangers of evasion and nullification, the Department may provide in such regulations without departing from the basic minimum rates recommended by the wage board such modifications or reductions of or additions to such rates in or for such special cases or classes of cases as those herein enumerated as the Department may find appropriate to safeguard the basic minimum rates established.
