Epstein Becker Green is pleased to be participating in the 2017 National HR In Hospitality Conference & Expo at the Aria Hotel in Las Vegas on March 27-29, 2017. EBG is sending two of its hospitality industry focused attorneys to represent the Firm, Jeffrey H. Ruzal and Steven M. Swirsky.
Jeff and his co-panelists will discuss the topic of new wage and hour regulations, which will be held on Monday, March 27, 2017. This panel of hospitality employment law professionals will cover changes associated with the minimum salary for exempt employees, managing challenges of off-duty work like email and texts; setting up bonus structures, tracking hours; and responding to flexible workweek requests. Panelists will detail their successes and challenges related to these topics, and offer up valuable actionable insights for your company.
Steve is participating on a panel which will focus on labor management relations – “Union 2017: Recent Developments.” The panel discussion will take place on Tuesday, March 28, 2017 and cover new organizing efforts, tactics and law, and renewed emphasis on elections. Session takeaways include identifying what law changes have occurred and how they affect employers; a description of how employers react to these changes; and understanding whether unionization is poised to increase or decrease in the hotel industry.
Jeff and Steve look forward to sharing their knowledge in hospitality law and discussing best practices to avoid many of the recurring legal issues plaguing the hospitality industry.
