If you are involved or planning to be involved in the Travel and Hospitality industry as a manager or legal professional, you will find this book to be a valuable tool. Inside are discussions of the legal issues confronted by managers in the hotel, restaurant, travel and casino industries. The emphasis is on prevention of legal violations. By reading the book, managers can appreciate and identify what actions and precautions are necessary to avoid, or at least minimize the number of lawsuits. The book uses the case method, long recognized as a helpful approach to learning and debunking the often-complicated discipline of law. Readers will study decisions from actual cases in which hospitality establishments were sued and what decisions were made, as well as what legal precedents were cited. The 6th edition has been completely updated with the latest decisions as well as classic cases that remain persuasive today. The ?Preventive Tips for Managers? feature at the end of each chapter reviews the key points and concepts addressed. A chapter on Casino Law, a developing branch of the Hospitality field is also featured in the new edition. This specialty area has numerous unique legal applications, particularly in light of the discussions in many communities toward expanding the availability of this type of entertainment.Morris, Karen is the author of 'Hotel, Restaurant, and Travel Law A Preventive Approach', published 2003 under ISBN 9780766835993 and ISBN 0766835995.
