Seminar Highlights
We are thrilled to bring you two-packed days of content! Seminars include:

COVID and Legal Liability: What are the risks?

The public health risks associated with COVID have created new and unforeseen risks and realities, which all members of the hospitality industry need to be aware of. 

Where does the authority reside to enforce the guidelines? Does the failure to comply attract fines and/or penalties? Is there the risk of civil action for failure to comply – and does alleged failure to comply potentially attract a claim for injury as a result?

These are some of the questions that Lorne Folick (Dolden Wallace Folick LLP) will attempt to address to provide guidance to everyone in the hospitality industry.
