As California’s travel and hospitality industries begin the process of reopening during the COVID-19 pandemic, hotel owners and operators are particularly vulnerable to employment and premises liability lawsuits. Fortunately, there are specific measures businesses can take now to prevent, or at least mitigate the risks, associated with these claims. Join the California Hotel and Lodging Association and Adam Rosenthal, a labor and employment attorney and co-author of the Employer's Guide to COVID-19 and Emerging Workplace Issues, for a forward-looking webinar discussing the legal and practical issues hoteliers need to consider to survive and thrive during this new normal.

The webinar will cover the following topics:

  • Unique COVID-19 employment compliance concerns
  • Developing a COVID-19 Response & Action Plan
  • Federal and Cal OSHA and CDC Guidance for the hospitality industry
  • Updating specific employment policies
  • Guest waivers and warnings: legal and practical considerations
