In recognition of National Waitstaff Day, the Wage and Hour Division’s (WHD) Northeast Region is pleased to offer FREE, virtual “Essential Workers, Essential Protections” training to employers, employees, and worker advocates in the food services industry.
The presentation will discuss common FLSA minimum wage, overtime, tip rules, and child labor violations found in the restaurant industry and how to avoid them. The webinar will also discuss recent regulatory changes involving tipped workers and tipped pools.
The FLSA’s break time for nursing mothers requirements and the Family and Medical Leave Act’s (FMLA) leave protections will also be discussed. Links to helpful USDOL/WHD resource materials will be provided during the webinar, and a Q&A session will follow the presentation.
