The Hospitality Industry 2009: Employment Law and Human Resources Challenges

As we enter the second half of 2009, employers in the Hospitality Industry face many known and unknown challenges in managing their workforces: a new president, democratic control of congress, a newly-emboldened organized labor movement, a stressed economy and a myriad of new and proposed labor and employment laws. Please join the Greater Boston Hotels Human Resources Association and Seyfarth Shaw LLP for a half-day program exploring these developments and their potential impact on the way you do your business. Our program consists of multiple workshops covering the following timely topics:

  • downsizing;
  • using dispute resolution;
  • handling discrimination charges at the MCAD;
  • avoiding retaliation claims;
  • conducting effective internal investigations;
  • Employee Free Choice Act and The Current Labor Scene;
  • current wage and hour issues;
  • strategies for retaining your best employees;
  • hiring issues; and
  • immigration developments.
