Avoiding Tip Wage Lawsuits in the Foodservice and Hospitality Industries

Undoubtedly, if you're in the foodservice or hospitality industry where employees customarily receive tips, you've heard about the many wage and hour claims centering around the use of the "tip credit" and "tip pooling" arrangements. Quite typically, these claims are being filed as collective actions and plaintiff's lawyers attempt to seek damages for employees on a company wide basis which can be regional or even national in scope depending on the size and nature of the business involved.

This OnDemand Webinar is designed to give you a "lay of the land" view of the many pitfalls that you may encounter when utilizing the tip credit or establishing a tip pooling arrangement.
