CIHLER Regional Round Table

Event Details

The Cornell Institute for Hospitality Labor and Employment Relations (CIHLER) and Michelman & Robinson, LLP invite you to participate in the upcoming 2017 Los Angeles Regional Roundtable.  Please join us for the invitation-only roundtable on Tuesday, July 11 prior to heading over to the ALIS Summer Update! Lunch and CLE will be provided.

Topics of Discussion for the Roundtable

  1. DOL and NLRB - The United States Department of Labor recently announced its withdrawal of the guidance put in place by the Obama administration on the joint employer issue. Does the move have any immediate impact on the hotel industry given that the Browing-Ferris Industries decision is still on appeal? And what is the future of the hotel franchise model given the current administration's pro-business leanings? What is the impact on the industry with the expected Trump administration appointments to the NLRB?
  2. Local ordinances - Citoes such as Los Anegeles, Chicago and Seattle have in place local ordinances that alter the landscape of doing business models? How can hoteliers manage the compliance complexities of local and State ordinances verses Federal Law?
  3. Legalization of marijuana - The use of marijuana for both medical and recreational purposes has become legal in several jurisdictions. In the wake of changing state laws, how should (and do) hoteliers manage their workforces in light of marijuana's growing acceptance and legality?

Plus a bonus discussion of the fate of binding arbitration in employment.
