Who should attend

This course is intended for HR professionals working in the hospitality industry, HR consultants, hospitality managers and executives, hotel owners and asset managers, small business owners and franchise owners, and overseas companies looking to do business with the U.S. market.

About the course

Federal anti-discrimination legislation covers seven protected classes: race, color, national origin, religion, sex, age, and disability. While some of these protected classes seem fairly clear-cut, others are not quite as straightforward. For example, there are nuances related to sexual harassment, retaliation, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and religion. You will examine these four areas in detail, including accommodations, different standards for what constitutes discrimination, and adverse employment actions.

More specifically, you will explore sexual harassment and when your organization may be liable under the law. You will study retaliation and investigate how you can minimize conduct that can trigger discrimination claims. In addition, you will scrutinize the definition of disability under the law and determine your organization’s obligations to accommodate for disability based on the ADA. You will also analyze your obligations to accommodate employees' religious beliefs.
