The restaurant industry is the nation’s second-largest private sector employer with a workforce that exceeds 14 million people. An industry of this magnitude inevitably faces a wide-range of legal issues, making it important for you to stay abreast of the concerns that are unique to this type of business. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear from our speakers as they draw upon their personal experiences to help you better understand the issues to be aware of before representing the restaurant/food service client, including:

  • Joint-employer liability issues;
  • Tip pooling;
  • Overtime;
  • Minimum wage;
  • Marijuana use issues;
  • Predictive scheduling;
  • LGBTQ issues;
  • Drafting non-disclosure agreements; and
  • Safeguarding your client’s confidential information.
