Next up in the series of monthly seminars tailored to restaurant owners and managers is a program focusing on labor and employment issues. On May 11, "Wage and Hour, Tip Credit, Immigration and Child Labor Issues" is hosted by Flaster/Greenberg's Restaurant/Hospitality Industry Group, and is the second in the series of free breakfast workshops running from April through November 2009. The seminar series was developed to help restaurant owners adjust to some of the challenges facing the industry resulting from the current economic and regulatory climate and in response to requests from clients, according to Flaster/Greenberg shareholder Phil Kirchner, who heads the Restaurant/Hospitality Industry Practice Group at the firm.
"These are difficult times in the industry," he says, "but we can help our clients maximize the value in their business and operate profitably. This series will show restaurateurs and managers what to do right now, so that they are in a much better position once the recovery begins."
