Fighting for Former & Current Hotel Employees' Pay

Most hotel employees are extremely hard-working individuals, who engage in very demanding work with very little recognition or appreciation, while being paid at the lower end of the employment pay scale. As such, the expectation would naturally be that those hotel workers would at least receive the statutory minimums established by the province's employment standards legislation. Unfortunately, all too frequently, Alberta and Canadian hotel employees are not receiving the statutory minimums established by provincial laws, because their pay structure is based on the laws of another province or country that has less expensive payroll calculations. And this is even happening where there is a union and a collective bargaining agreement in place, such that unionized hotel employees are also being underpaid, even though they believe that their collective bargaining agreement has adequately covered every statutory minimum from the applicable provincial employment standards legislation.

However, since no one can afford to lose their job, least of all most hotel workers, we are not interested in anyone jeopardizing their current employment. Instead, our active pursuit of correcting hotel employee payments is led by former employees who have left their jobs, including being fired, terminated and laid off; while those hotel workers that are currently employed in the hospitality industry have their identity and information strictly guarded and kept confidential. Meanwhile, we use the many legal tools available to employees to safeguard their identity and continued employment, while seeking to insure that they are fully paid in accordance with the applicable provincial employment standards legislation and pertinent case law.

This is also being undertaken in part through our class action litigation against two of Canada's largest hotel groups, being the Marriott / Starwood hotel group and the InnVest / Accor hotel group, collectively representing approximately three hundred hotels across Canada. As such, we have already intitiated court proceedings against these two major hotel groups, which may enable us to correct underpayments for both the current and former employees at those hotels. However, it is anticipated that the hotel's employer will attempt to exclude as many employees as possible, although we will being vigorously countering any such effort where we have the legal or factual means to make such an argument. And for that reason, together with other reasons, there is mutual benefit in your providing us with such information confidentially and with the legal safeguards that exist against its disclosure to your employer.

So if you're a recently terminated, long-serving hotel employee looking for a lawyer to provide a specialized approach to reviewing and potentially pursuing an increased termination and severance pay-out, or you are a current or past hotel employee of either the Marriott / Starwood hotel group or the InnVest / Accor hotel group, do not hesitate to contact hotel employee lawyer Christopher Neufeld in strict confidence at either telephone number 403-400-4092 or by email at Chris@NeufeldLegal.com.
