Newly enacted regulatory strategies by the federal government are targeting hotels and their employees, which could lead to increased federal enforcement actions, class and collective action lawsuits, and union organizing should the industry not live up to these new standards.

  • How your property will be impacted by increased enforcement
  • H-2B seasonal visa holders
  • Safety and health initiatives, including ergonomics
  • OFCCP 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., you’ll hear from a panel of labor attorneys who work with AH&LA members on an ongoing basis and can answer your toughest questions.

To protect your property and your employees, you need to know and play by the rules.

January 20: Social Media Marketing: Real Analytics, Real Results!
When: Wednesday, January 20
Time: 11:00 a.m. (CT)

In this webinar, Clay McDaniel and Xavier Jimenez of the Spring Creek Group, argue that social media marketing has moved beyond measuring buzz – to actually engaging consumers to buy. While social media marketing in 2009 centered on experimental campaigns to build brand engagement, amass fans and followers, and increase brand recognition, Clay and Xavier will explain why 2010 will be the year of analytics and conversion measurement in social media marketing. Instead of just throwing money at social marketing next year, brands will demand tools to measure with precision which social marketing methods are working to actually drive bottom-line sales.

Certainly, consumers are ready for promotions delivered through social channels – they’ve had enough of being “friends” with your brand, now they want deals! New research from Razorfish release a few weeks ago (http://bit.ly/RazorfishReport) found that promotions and discounts were primary drivers of “friending” a brand for over a third of social networking users and 44% of Twitter users.

Fisher & Phillips offering Free Webinar – July 8, 2009

Fisher&Phillips

“In light of the burgeoning number of immigration-related federal and state laws, immigration compliance is now a major concern among employers of all sizes. This is especially true in the hospitality industry, where employers face unique challenges in complying with federal and state immigration laws. For example, the presence of contract or seasonal workers in your business, or management of your facility by a hospitality management company, can complicate compliance efforts.

During this webinar we will highlight the most important steps that should be taken immediately to ensure compliance, and we will also preview new and emerging rules and regulations. These include revisions to the Form I-9 and special I-9 issues for contract labor, new state and federal laws requiring use of E-Verify, including a new requirement that businesses holding federal contracts use E-Verify, workplace immigration raids targeting hospitality businesses, and Social Security no-match letters. It is important to remember that these compliance issues affect all businesses, not just those with foreign national employees.

The second portion of the webinar will focus on the unique visa options that are available for foreign-national employees working in the hospitality industry. Whether you are looking to hire new talent, or seeking to retain a valued foreign-national employee, understanding the breadth of visa options available will be valuable in managing your personnel resources. We will not only describe the qualification criteria and limitations of each visa, but will give specific examples of how it can be used in a variety of hospitality settings.

This hour long webinar is free, but registration is required. Once your registration is complete you will receive an email confirmation with instructions on how to join the webinar.

Webinar date and time:
Wednesday, July 8, 2009 – 2:00 p.m. EDT / 11:00 a.m. PDT

If you have any questions, please contact Gail Rice at 404-231-1400 or grice@laborlawyers.com
