2011Brochures Practical Advice

In light of the new wage order issued for the hospitality industry in New York (effective January 1, 2011) and other recent changes in state and federal law, we have prepared this checklist that employers in the hospitality industry can use to help ensure their general compliance with the applicable federal and state wage and hour laws. The list below is not intended to be comprehensive and does not cover all of the wage and hour requirements under federal and state law.
