Ever-changing labor laws – at both federal and state levels – CAN hurt your business if you don’t understand the laws or know how to comply. There are a lot of labor law updates coming down the pipe for restaurants in 2022, including the federal Emergency Temporary Standard on COVID-19 vaccines and testing; the recently updated and incredibly complex 80/20 tipping rule; changes around paid leave and the Healthy Families and Workplaces Act; and the Colorado Secure Savings Program.

To help your business remain compliant with these laws, we put together a webinar with Fisher & Phillips LLP attorneys Todd Fredrickson and Kristin White, clarifying what you need to know in the months to come. Additionally, we have complied resources and templates to protect your business.

Member-only benefit: Watch the December 14 webinar with Fisher Phillips LLP: “Restaurant Labor Law in 2022: What to Expect and How to Comply”; recording here, presentation here.
