Restaurant Industry Is Focus Of Department Of Labor Probe

A local Colorado newspaper recently reported that several restaurants in Aspen Colorado were contacted by the U.S. Department of Labor to investigate payroll and other employee records.

Restaurants are regularly investigated by the state and federal departments of labor for wage and hour law compliance.   Compliance for restaurant operators can be trickier than for some other businesses due to the laws regarding handling of tips, the use of student workers, the long hours restaurants stay open, and the incidence of blurring  supervisory and nonsupervisory roles.  If you have questions about wage and hour laws in the restaurant industry, contact a Meyers Fried-Grodin attorney.
