This CLE webinar will discuss unique wage and hour law challenges hotel and restaurant employers face, strategies for proactively implementing policies and practices to minimize liability exposure, and best practices to defend employee claims.

Description

Because the hospitality industry employs a young and diverse workforce in jobs with a high turnover rate, employment law compliance is a constant concern. Hotel and restaurant employers face myriad employment law compliance challenges, including meeting federal and state wage and hour law obligations governing worker classification, overtime pay, and tipped employees.

Employment counsel advising hospitality industry employers must understand the current enforcement and litigation environment and help their clients implement effective labor and employment policies and practices to minimize the risk of noncompliance with wage and hour laws. Counsel must also be prepared to defend their hospitality industry clients in Department of Labor (DOL) audits and employee lawsuits.

Listen as our authoritative panel of employment attorneys discusses current wage and hour trends and case law developments impacting hospitality industry employers. The panel will outline unique legal issues hotel and restaurant employers face, strategies to implement policies and practices that help minimize liability exposure, and best practices to defend employee claims.
