This fact sheet provides general information on how the RSA applies to hotel and motel employees. 13. Government Regulations and Enforcement If you are staying or staying in a hotel or motel, you must be aware of its rights and obligations as well as your own rights and obligations. Properties that provide accommodation to transients may be designated as motels, but may be considered hotels. The word “motel” usually refers to a small hotel where accommodation can be rented, with minimal personalized service provided by the owner. Schermer v. Fremar Corp., 36 N.J.

Super. 46 (Ch.Div. 1955). The term “motel” originally applied to hotels that had parking locations (“motorized hotels” became “motels”) when cars first traveled across the country, and then most hotels did not have designated parking spaces. Thus, motels were located on high roads and were convenient for people traveling by car. As more and more hotels offered parking, this distinction became obsolete and motels simply became informal hotels. (a) General. A hotel or motel may be eligible for an exemption from the overtime pay requirements of the Act even if it is located in a business described in section 3(s) and is not exempt under section 13(a)(2) because it exceeds the monetary criterion for exemption under that section. The first part of section 13 (b) (8) provides that the overtime provisions of section 7 of the Act do not apply to “employees employed in an establishment that is a hotel, motel ** * **”. The exemption provided for in Article 13(b)(8) shall apply irrespective of the annual turnover in dollars of a hotel or motel or the undertaking to which it belongs. The RSA provides two methods of applying its provisions to hotel or motel employees. The business coverage base provides that if the employer`s annual sales or volume of business is $500,000 or more, whether the establishment is a single establishment or a business with several establishments, and the employer employs two or more employees engaged in the trade or manufacture of goods intended for the trade or handling of such goods: All employees of the company are covered by the FLSA.

The RSA also provides an “individual employee” coverage basis, which applies even if the annual turnover or volume of business is less than $500,000. Employees may continue to be insured if they individually participate in interstate commerce or produce goods for interstate commerce. Interstate commerce includes activities such as conducting business across state borders through interstate telephone calls or the U.S. Postal Service, ordering or receiving goods from an out-of-state supplier, or managing accounting or accounting for these activities. It would also include the settlement of credit card transactions affecting interstate banking and financial systems. Hotels and motels may place a lien on any property you have brought into your room (for example, goods, clothing, luggage or furniture) if you owe money to the hotel or motel so that the hotel can hold on to your property until payment. Such privileges can be placed on your property if you have stayed for one or more nights. Also, if you owe money to the hotel or motel, it can auction off any luggage or belongings you left there to pay off your debts. The hotel or motel must announce these auctions at least ten days in advance. (e) hotels and motels engaged in other activities. The main function of a hotel or motel is to provide accommodation to the public. In addition, most hotels or motels offer food for their guests and many sell alcoholic beverages.

These organizations may also engage in some marginal income-generating activities; such as operating valet parking services that provide cleaning and washing services for their guests` clothes, newsstands, leisure shops, renting their public spaces for meetings, conferences, dances, trade shows and weddings. The exemption in section 13(b)(8) for “hotels” and “motels” is not waived solely because a “hotel” or “motel” carries on all or part of those activities while its principal activity is to provide accommodation, food and beverages to the public. Youth Employment: The FLSA`s Child Labor Regulations prohibit the employment of minors under the age of 14 in non-agricultural occupations, limit working hours and restrict occupations for 14- and 15-year-olds, and prohibit the employment of minors under the age of 18 in hazardous work. Hotels and motels may allow you to store your valuables (such as cash or jewelry) in a safe during your stay. The hotel or motel can be held responsible for losses of up to $300 if your valuables are lost, stolen or destroyed. Similarly, the hotel or motel may be held responsible for your lost or stolen baggage up to a maximum of $150 if it provides space for your luggage during your stay. Under federal and state law, hotels and motels cannot discriminate against you on the basis of race, creed, color, national origin, religion, sex, disability, marital status, or age (including denial or denial of services or deportation).
