Every good meeting professional knows to plan around food allergies and dietary restrictions. It’s good business. But it’s also the law. Expanding disability laws, stricter corporate liability laws, and new food labeling and disclosure laws are making food-related risk and liability a ripe topic for legislation and litigation. In this session, an industry lawyer and a meeting planner address questions that even seasoned meeting professionals may have: To whom do I owe a legal duty of care? Am I meeting it? And what is the personal and organizational risk for failing to?
• Define “duty of care” as it applies to persons with food allergies and dietary restrictions.
• Assess the applicability of specific laws to food-related liability risk including those related to disability, health and safety, and corporate manslaughter.
• Incorporate risk mitigation techniques to create best practices in planning for and executing food-related elements of meetings.
