January 27, 2019 - January 28, 2019  All day

Under the ALIS umbrella, ALIS Law focuses on current legal matters of interest to hotel owners and operators. While the Americas Lodging Investment Summit (ALIS) conference discusses the issues and opportunities related to buying, selling, and building hotels, ALIS Law focuses on the “day after” the deal closes and the many legal issues owners and operators face. Attendees included general counsel teams of hotel ownership companies, management companies, and brands, as well as law firms that advise hoteliers.

On Monday, January28, 2019 from 8:45am- 9:30am, CIHLER Director, Dave Sherwyn '86, JD '89 will speak and moderate panel at the ALIS Law Conference.

SEXUAL HARASSMENT IN 2019

PREVENTING, INVESTIGATING, EVALUATING, & LITIGATING
The relevance of sexual harassment has increased exponentially since Weinstein and MeToo, but what
about the law has it changed? What about employers have they altered their practices and
procedures?
In this session we will release the full results of the report named, “Yes, It Was Sexual Harassment, But Is The Company Liable?”, which is a statistical analysis of how courts apply the affirmative
defense in sexual harassment cases for 1998 - 2000 compared to 2010 - 2017. We will then discuss how operators are preventing and responding to sexual harassment claims.
