  • Wage and hour compliance and litigation may represent the most costly exposure for hospitality employers. Large settlements can be squeezed from under-prepared and unknowing hospitality employers despite their best efforts to comply with state and federal wage and hour laws. With the anticipated increase in enforcement from the U.S. Department of Labor ("DOL") WHD ("WHD") and the ever-growing trend of wage and hour lawsuits and collective actions, hospitality employers should consider taking steps now to ensure compliance with the Fair Labor Standards Act ("FLSA") and state wage and hour laws.
