Employment Law



Most employment litigation results from comments or

actions on the "front line", not from the Human Resources

department. This session is designed to prepare managers

for on-the-job managerial situations and potential problems,

which may arise within the employer/employee relationship.

Attendees will develop a working knowledge of the numerous

laws governing employer/employee relationships, and

also be able to identify pro-active steps to circumvent

potential liability situations. The session will analyze labor/

management relations in the hospitality industry, including a

study of the history of labor relations, unions, and collective

bargaining agreements, in addition to other topics related

to employment law.

Hospitality Law - Tort Analysis



The ability to anticipate and resolve legal complications that

arise on a daily basis in the day-to-day operations of a hotel/

restaurant/casino/business is imperative. Understanding the

impact that these daily legal issues may have on a business

is the cornerstone to addressing, preventing and resolving

legal problems.

Attendees should have an operative understanding of proactive

legal management. This session is designed to provide

a basic understanding of the law, legal concepts, and their

application to the hospitality industry. Upon completion of

this session, attendees will be able to explain the process

involved in the US legal system, analyze the physical elements

of a hospitality facility in order to anticipate and reduce

dangers, apply tort legal analysis to factual situations which

occur daily, analyze statutory regulation as applied to the

hospitality industry, and distinguish between the "reality"

and "legality" of common practices in hospitality.

Hospitality Law - Contract

Negotiations



Contracts form the basis of the daily operations of a hotel/

restaurant/casino/business. Understanding the technical

rules for formation of contracts is imperative in order to

create binding and enforceable agreements with employees,

guests and third parties. Attendees should have an operative

understanding of contract negotiation and formation. This

session is designed to provide a basic understanding of the

required elements for a contract, how to legally create those

elements, how to negotiate effectively, and how the creation

of contracts applies to the hospitality industry.

Upon conclusion of this session, attendees will be able

to explain the process involved in the US legal system,

analyze the six elements necessary to create a binding

contract, apply contract legal analysis to factual situations

which occur daily in hospitality facilities, especially as it

relates to offers and acceptance, and effectively negotiate

contractual offers with the ability to revoke or terminate

the offers without incurring legal liability, and distinguish

between the "reality" and "legality" of common practices

in contract formation.

Legal Liability for the Ick Factor:

Bedbugs, Legionnaires' disease

and other things that give us the

willies



What happens when you fail to take care of the cleanliness

of your property? What are the consequences of our actions

to provide a safe and clean guestroom? Learn how a property

can protect itself from the "Ick Factor". This session looks

at the actions of properties that have failed in their duty of

care and the consequences of their actions. Review actual

court cases of guests that have taken action, and learn how

to protect yourself and avoid similar circumstances and

outcomes. This session will explain the process involved in

the U.S. legal system as it relates to liability in lodging and

analyze statutory regulations for cleanliness as applied to

the hospitality industry. Upon completion of the session,

attendees will be able to develop an effective and efficient

approach to successful management of guest room attendants,

effectively analyze current cases to determine potential

for legal liability for acts or omissions of managers, and

distinguish between the "reality" and "legality" of common

practices in lodging.
