Subject: Employment Law Compliance Plan – Bollman Hotels
Per your request, I have formulated an employment law compliance plan for a Mr. Galvan. Mr. Galvan is a Human Resources Representative for Bollman Hotels and the hotel chain is currently located in Minneapolis, Minnesota with hopes to expand into the international market, starting off with India. The hotel chain currently employs 25,000 employees and they plan to increase the workforce by 25% in their new location. The purpose of this memorandum is to provide a plan that can be incorporated into the business strategies for a successful entry into the international market.
This memorandum will examine several employment laws and the penalties of noncompliance. The US and India’s employment laws equally address minimum wage, equal rights and opportunities, discrimination, limitations and prohibitions on employment of children. I combined both US and India employment laws for consistency in compliance aligned with company policies and guidelines in the US.
Below is a list of applicable employment laws and consequences for noncompliance:
1. Minimum Wages Act 1948
2. The Child Labour (Prohibition and Regulation) Act, 1986
3. Equal Remuneration Act, 1976
4. Delhi Shops and Establishments Act 1954
Minimum Wage Act 1948
The US Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) provides standards for the basic minimum wage and overtime pay for private and public workers (Cascio, 2013). India has a Minimum Wages Act of 1948 that sets wages for the different economic sectors and State governments have minimum wage schedules, and another article that covers the prohibition of child labor under 14 years old in factory, mine or hazardous work environment ( Delhi Labour Department, 2014). Noncompliance of the minimum wage
