HORSHAM, PA--(Marketwire - March 8, 2011) - The 5th Annual National HR in Hospitality Conference & Expo will host a panel of legal experts discussing "Hot Topics in Labor & Employment Law" on Tuesday, April 5, at the Marriott Wardman Park in Washington, D.C. The session is one of six plenary and nine breakout sessions taking place during the conference that runs April 4-6, 2011. Full-conference admission is $1,395; however, registrants can save $300.00 through March 18. To register, visit or call 1-800-727-1227.

The discussion panel will include attorneys who specialize in employment and labor law in the hospitality industry: Gregg Gilman, Partner and Co-Chair of Labor & Employment Practices at Davis & Gilbert LLP; Carolyn Richmond, Partner and National Co-Chair of Hospitality Practice at Fox Rothschild LLP; Leslie Silverman, Partner at Proskauer Rose; and Paul Wagner, Shareholder at Stokes Roberts & Wagner. The discussion will be moderated by David Sherwyn, Associate Professor of Law at the Cornell University School of Hotel Administration.

This elite panel will provide the latest legal intelligence hospitality professionals need in a high-energy, unabridged dialogue on diverse topics such as the latest in labor campaign and election rules, independent contractors and employee definition changes, and fair pay concepts.

"The Supreme Court has seemingly opened retaliation claims to an unlimited group of employees. What did the Court really do? How should employers react?" Sherwyn said. "Meanwhile, wage and hour claims continue to rise and unions are fighting for their lives -- these are interesting issues for HR professionals to discuss and strategize."

Year after year, hospitality HR professionals convene at this unique event to discover new and proven ways to resolve difficult work issues, from healthcare reform and discrimination claims, to immigration policy enforcement and many others. They can also interact with panelists and speakers during exciting networking and luncheon events and explore vendor booths in the Expo Hall.
