This comprehensive textbook introduces students to the many legal issues that hotel operations face daily. The fifth edition revises the text to update and clarify the basic legal principles that govern the hospitality industry. New material includes "drive by" ADA lawsuits, admitting minors to hotels, overbooking, group contracts, tip compliance agreements with the IRS, and the power of law enforcement to obtain guest records.

The book addresses changes in major legislation, including the Family Medical Leave Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and immigration laws. A new chapter explains the impact of the USA PATRIOT Act and related legislation on the hotel industry.
