Pennsylvania’s hospitality industry has earned the dubious distinction of violating the nation’s pay laws more often than those in any state outside the Sun Belt. Only Texas, Alabama and Florida have more hotels that have violated federal wage-and-hour laws.
Within the state, York, Erie and Pittsburgh have the most hotels in violation. Farmington, Lancaster and Harrisburg fall into the next tier, according to an analysis performed by watchdog PublicSource.
The study cited failure to pay minimum wage and overtime, violations of child labor laws, misclassifying employees as independent contractors and requiring employees to purchase name tags and uniforms. Among the violators were several high-end resorts such as York’s Heritage Hills Golf Resort and Farmington’s Nemacolin Woodlands Resort.
