Over the last few years, Earned Wage Access (“EWA”) has become a highly-valued employee benefit provided by employers in many industries, especially Hospitality, Retail, Manufacturing and in the gig economy. EWA provides workers the ability to access a portion of their already earned wages, instead of waiting for the regular pay cycle. Employers have found that providing access to EWA can significantly help with recruiting and retention. This webinar will explore the legal, practical and contractual benefits and risks that restaurants should be aware of when considering whether to offer EWA services to its employees.
