Primerus Employment Seminar 

Wednesday, April 14, 2021

12:00 pm – 1:30 pm ET


Needless to say, the Hospitality Industry has suffered the brunt of the pandemic restrictions. In view of the industry’s historically high mortality rate where even 100% capacity is the norm, how could one reasonably believe that the industry can survive at 25% capacity or less?

Thanks for reading Hellenic News of America

These restrictions have produced a business mortality rate that is unprecedented. Besides the quality-of-life loss that restaurant closings provide for those who enjoy the pleasure of the dining experience, this business loss is producing another ominous effect for our economy: restaurants and hotels create and sustain a very high portion of our private-sector workforce. Government cannot manufacture these jobs. It is the private sector taking business risks that fulfills this need. While it certainly is not the governments’ fault that we have a pandemic, unnecessarily excessive economic damage produced by unwarranted governmental measures must lay at the feet of the politicians.

In addition to the above, the panel will also be discussing; the proposed $15 Minimum Wage increase, Job Misclassifications, and Harassment in the Workplace.

Will the hospitality industry survive these watershed changes and what will it look like if it does?

This program will host a 60-minute panel presentation, and include two break-out sessions for individuals to engage in deeper conversation about the issues presented to those in the retail and hospitality industry. CLE credit will be available for attendance of the live presentation upon approval from each individual state.

Breakout #1

$15 Minimum Wage

Harassment Issues in the Hospitality Workplace

Job Misclassification

Breakout #2

Business Interruption Insurance

Employment Issues for “Tipped Workers”

Restrictive Covenants and Liquidated Damages Provisions
