EL PASO, TX – Attorney Rosemary Marin, chair of the ScottHulse Law Firm’s labor and employment section and a member of the firm’s litigation and education law practice groups, was a featured speaker at the September 13 meeting of the El Paso Restaurant Association. Ms. Marin provided an overview of changes to the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) Overtime Rules, which will go into effect December 1.
“The new DOL overtime rules could potentially have a significant impact on restaurants,” said Ms. Marin. “Restaurants may be forced to pay more to certain employees and will need to more carefully manage overtime. Restaurants typically operate on thin margins, so it is going to be a real challenge for restaurant owners to manage and absorb the additional costs associated with the new rules, while also ensuring compliance with the law.”
