Our Retail Industry Team assists retail employers of all sizes find practical solutions to employment law questions.

As an employer who operates one or more retail sales outlets, you've probably heard or asked yourself some of these questions:

  • How can I make sure we're complying with the various state laws on wages for breaks and meals?
  • Can I justify that all of the employees I have classified as exempt from overtime under the Fair Labor Standards Act meet the tests for the exemptions?
  • My store is currently non-union. How can I best stay that way?
  • How can I comply with the Family and Medical Leave Act while still having the coverage I need at peak shopping hours?
  • ICE just showed up and wants to see all my I-9's, right now. What do I do?
  • Can I fire that cashier who has piercings in her nose and lips and tattoos all over her arms and legs?
  • Do I have to allow the Muslim sales associate to wear a head scarf?
  • Can I fire the worker who used social media to bash store management?
  • How will my company survive this class/collective/EEOC lawsuit?
