Jeffrey H. Ruzal, Member of the Firm, will present "Wage and Hour Issues in the Hospitality Industry: Worker Classification, Overtime Pay, Tip Pooling and Other Claims" at the Wage and Hour Law full-day CLE seminar.

This session 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.

  • Proactive steps hospitality industry employers should take to avoid Department of Labor (DOL) audits and employee lawsuits
