Culintro Presents: How to Protect Your Restaurant

October 27, 2009
Museum of Arts & DesignNew York, New York

A discussion with NYC’s top restaurant lawyer Carolyn Richmond & Will Regan of 3Sixty Hospitality on critical & current issues affecting NYC restaurants

At Culintro’s next panel event, on Tuesday, October 27th from 2:30PM – 4:30PM at the Museum of Arts & Design, Carolyn Richmond (Fox Rothschild LLP) and Will Regan (3Sixty Hospitality) will candidly speak about wage laws and how to avoid litigation; moderated by Citysearch National Restaurant Editor, Josh Ozersky. The event will provide a variety of resources and tips on how to avoid common allegations. The discussion is in direct response to daily lawsuits suffered by New York City restaurants.

In the past five years some of New York's most prominent restaurateurs have been the target of plaintiffs' class action lawsuits concerning allegations of tip pool impropriety and other wage and hour issues. At risk are millions of dollars of back pay claims, the tip credit, double damages and attorneys fees.

Knowing that private legal consultation is costly, Culintro is hosting this discussion as an affordable and insightful way for any restaurateur and operator to understand potential risks that could ultimately destroy their business.
