WAGE AND HOUR AND IMMIGRATION COMPLIANCE
FOR THE HOSPITALITY INDUSTRY
HEAR FROM THE US DEPARTMENT OF LABOR REGARDING ENFORCEMENT AND BRING YOUR QUESTIONS!
When: Tuesday, June 5, 2018
Where: Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce
5 Patti Page Way, Centerville, MA
Over the past several years the Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce has noted a dramatic increase in wage and hour litigation involving the hospitality industry. The United States Department of Labor and the Massachusetts Office of the Attorney General have targeted the hospitality industry for compliance audits over the past several years, an effort that will continue well into the future. Since 2011 the DOL has emphasized the use of stiffer penalties (such as multiple damages and civil monetary penalties) when enforcing immigration and wage and hour laws. Wage and hour law and immigration law changes and changes to the seasonal worker landscape has also caused an increase in litigation and enforcement actions in these fields.
This informative workshop is designed to provide our members with all of the tools necessary to comply with wage and hour laws. Topics to be addressed include:
• How to comply with both federal and state law (and why employers must do both);
• How to avoid common, but potentially crippling, mistakes in calculating and paying minimum wage and overtime;
• Compliance with the Massachusetts and Federal Tipping Law;
• Common mistakes by restaurateurs and hotel/motel owners;
• Personal liability, multiple damages and attorneys’ fees exposure under Massachusetts and federal law;
• What you should do if faced with a government audit or threatened litigation.
