In light of newly enacted regulatory strategies by the federal government targeting hotels and their employees, as well as members’ reports of audits on a wide variety of issues, the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AH&LA) is hosting an informative Webinar, “Labor Department Targeting Hotels For Audits: Be Prepared,” on July 28, from 2-3:30 p.m.

Attendees will learn how to comply and make sense of the recently announced "Plan/Prevent/Protect" regulatory and enforcement initiatives by the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL).  If the new initiatives are not implemented, hotels may have to contend with increased federal enforcement actions, class and collective action lawsuits, and union organizing.

Topics include new challenges and best practices around:

  • How your property will be impacted by increased enforcement
  • H-2B seasonal visa holders
  • Safety and health initiatives, including ergonomics
  • Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs audits
  • Wage and hour investigations, including exempt status and independent contractor classification
Presented by national law firm Ogletree, Deakins, Nash, Smoak and Stewart, P.C., a panel of labor attorneys will address these topics and answer questions.
