Annual Conference Provides Legal and Strategic Solutions for Hospitality Professionals; Register by Feb. 18 to Save $400.00

HORSHAM, PA--(Marketwire - December 7, 2010) - "Public policy changes, particularly in the areas of healthcare and immigration, have companies pushing the reset button on their policies and processes," said JoAnne Kruse, founder of HCpartners and the new program chair of the 5th Annual HR in Hospitality Conference & Expo. But don't hit that reset button before attending this conference April 4-6, 2011, at Marriott Wardman Park in Washington, D.C.

Developed by Human Resource Executive® magazine and Cornell University, the program for the 2011 event features six plenary sessions as well as nine breakout sessions designed to help HR hospitality professionals comply with difficult issues including healthcare reform, immigration worksite enforcement and FLSA audits.

In the "Creating Healthcare Solutions in 2011 and Beyond" session, Aon Hewitt and Boyd Gaming executives will discuss the topic on everyone's mind today -- healthcare reform -- and how HR departments can prepare to comply with the coming requirements while still providing affordable options to employees and the company.

Concurrently and in the same HR and Public Policy track, three specialists in the federal government's worksite enforcement of immigration-related employment law will present, "Between a Rock and a Hard Place: How to Manage Immigration Worksite Enforcement." Attendees will hear essential strategies for protecting their employers and themselves from civil and criminal liability.

"Our panel discussion will be customized to the HR hospitality professional and is intended to educate them on timely and important issues related to employer compliance," said Jerry Grzeca, panelist and Managing Partner of Grzeca Law Group. "It is designed to be an interactive, informative, and comprehensive discussion of policies and practices that can protect employers from civil and criminal violations."

In "Hospitality: DOL's 'Most Wanted' for FLSA Audits," two experts will address the Department of Labor's recent initiative to target the hospitality industry for FLSA and wage and hour audits, showing attendees how to proactively defend their company.

Also on the agenda are exciting networking events and the Expo, featuring HR products and services for the hospitality industry. No other event delves deep into the strategic, operational and regulatory challenges unique to HR professionals in the hospitality industry.
