Epstein Becker Green has long been a leader in providing labor and employment law services to the hospitality industry. Our HELLO group—shorthand for "Hospitality Employment and Labor Law Outreach"—is our team of professionals dedicated to every aspect of labor and employment law affecting hospitality employers.
Hotels, restaurants, resorts, spas, clubs, casinos, cruise ships, golf courses—the very nature of these businesses presents unique labor and employment issues. Few other industries open their doors and invite the public to interact with their employees. That fact alone not only makes these businesses susceptible to union organizing and large scale litigation, including wage-hour class actions and collective actions, but presents unusual challenges in handling those matters.
Epstein Becker Green's hospitality industry clients have the benefit of attorneys who recognize and know how to address these challenges—and, just as importantly, understand their businesses. That experience is invaluable in assisting hospitality industry employers in dealing with issues such as union avoidance, arbitration, collective bargaining, discrimination complaints, administrative claims, wage-hour litigation, immigration and worksite enforcement, benefits plans, ERISA compliance, internal audits, the drafting and review of handbooks and contracts, and daily advice and counsel.
