Employee wage and hour disputes are among the most common and substantial risks facing businesses in the hospitality industry – costly lawsuits can result if employers are not vigilant in their compliance practices. In this course, Tannenbaum Helpern employment law attorneys Andrew W. Singer and Jason B. Klimpl discuss best practices that businesses can utilize to minimize the legal risks associated with employee compensation, as well as suggestions for handling related litigation and other disputes. For instance, Andrew and Jason address what employers in the hospitality industry must do to properly track employee hours worked, calculate and pay overtime, maintain proper records, take a tip credit, and much more. The presenters also provide an update on federal wage regulations and recent case law affecting hospitality employers.
