Seminar to Address Wage-and-hour Challenges for Restaurant Owners

NORTHAMPTON — Navigating wage-and-hour law, particularly in the restaurant industry, is a complicated minefield, and it’s easy to make an inadvertent mistake. What’s more troubling is that violations of wage-and-hour laws in Massachusetts can be extremely costly.

Royal, P.C. will present a round-table-style seminar on Thursday, May 5 discussing some of the most important wage-and-hour laws, and offering timely and practical advice, methods, and strategies to help ensure that organizations are up to date and in compliance with these laws. Attorney Jennifer Butler will address topics such as tipped workers and minimum wage, overtime, earned sick time, and child labor.

The seminar runs from 8 to 9 a.m. at Royal, P.C., 270 Pleasant St., Northampton. The cost is $30 per person. Seating is limited, and advance registration is required. To register, mail a check — payable to Royal, P.C. — to 270 Pleasant St., Northampton, MA 01060, or e-mail Ann-Marie Marcil at [email protected] with questions about the event or to register.
