On January 26, 2015, I am speaking at the Triathlon Business International (“TBI”) Conference in Marina Del Ray, California about wage and hour law and how it relates to endurance sport events. You can read my previous takes on the topic here, here and here. In light of the Liebesman v. Competitor Group, Inc. case, this is an issue that a lot of for profit race directors and event companies are going to need to take seriously — just because “we’ve always used volunteers” doesn’t mean wage and hour laws don’t apply. It is also an issue that may impact thousands of athletes (if races must pay all “volunteers,” ultimately athletes will be the ones footing the bill). While there are still lots of questions concerning whether (and to what extent) wage and hour laws apply to for profit races, I wanted to share my presentation with the hope of shedding a little more light on the topic. If you would like a copy of the presentation, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I send it to you.
