MPHM 720 - Hospitality Law
Domestic and international hospitality businesses—including hotels, restaurants, travel, and conference/event companies—are subject to a variety of laws and frequently challenged by legal issues.  These challenges can be daunting for any person, but especially one unfamiliar with the legal landscape.  Designed for non-attorney professionals in the corporate and small business space, this course provides an overview of laws and legal issues most frequently invoked by relationships within the hospitality industry, including: (1) contractual relationships among the industry players themselves, including hotel and restaurant owners, management companies, and franchisors; (2) a hospitality company’s relationships with its guests and customers; (3) a hospitality company’s relationships with its employees (invoking labor and employment laws) and (4) a hospitality company’s relationships with federal, state and municipal government agencies (defined by various regulations).
