Spring is finally here, and the cherry blossoms are blooming in Washington. Tourists are out in full force, and the hospitality industry is beginning its busy time and hiring its seasonal workers. Just as the hospitality industry is ramping up, so are some legal and regulatory developments that employers need to be aware of.


The hospitality industry continues to face a variety of legal challenges — from increased wage laws and new threats of privacy and data breaches to compliance with the Affordable Care Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act. 




In Part 1, we discussed President Obama's agenda to revise current wage and hour laws, the National Labor Relations Board's efforts to try and push through "ambush" election rules, and cybersecurity issues as they pertain to the hospitality industry.


Here, we will switch focus and examine the promulgation of the final regulations for the Affordable Care Act's rules for seasonal employees, and public accommodation access issues under the Americans with Disabilities Act.
