Don't Get Burned in Your Kitchen

January 26, 2015FSR MagazineAttorney: Jordan A. Fisch

Member, Jordan Fisch gives an outline of considerations for a restaurant owner when hiring a chef.

-How much discretion and control do I want to provide to my chef?
-Should my chef have accountability to me, or should the kitchen be his or her “domain?”
-Who owns his or her recipes?
-Should my chef have an interest in the restaurant or the restaurant’s brand?
-What are my expectations for my chef?
-Should he/she be required to work in the restaurant full-time, or is the pursuit of outside interests (social media, television, book writing, appearances, etc.) permitted?
