  • Analysis of the Hospitality law case study
  • This assignment is based on the following case study –

    Mr and Mrs Ratchett wish to book a holiday for themselves and their son Boris, who is aged 9. They look for suitable places to stay on the Internet and eventually decide to book a stay at ‘Hadleys’, which is described as a family hotel and leisure park.
    The homepage of the website states: “Disappointment is a word we don’t use at Hadley’s! We will ensure you have the holiday of a lifetime and your every need will be met. Satisfaction is guaranteed”’.
    The detailed information on the website states that there is entertainment provided for Children during the day, including an Adventure Playground, suitable for all children aged above 7, as well a Health Spa and Casino for adults in the evening.
    Mrs Ratchett fills in the online booking form and pays £1200 for the family to stay for a week in July. She books a family suite which the website says includes separate rooms for children and adults together with an ensuite bathroom for each and a separate communal living room. She receives an automated reply confirming that the rooms requested rooms are available for the dates required and have been reserved for her. Shortly afterwards she receives a further e.mail confirming the booking and giving information about what to do on arrival. This is entitled ‘Receipt’ and also states in small print at the bottom “Hadleys accept no responsibility if we are unable to comply with the precise requirements of your booking and will not be liable for any representations or conditions that cannot be complied with”.
    The family arrive at Hadleys on Saturday morning. They check in and are shown to their room. They are very disappointed to find that they all have to share a single large room and the bathroom is in fact along the corridor from their room and shared with other residents. They are very disappointed however they decide to stay as they think they will be too busy enjoying the facilities to spend too much time in the room.
    The family go to Hadley’s Diner for lunch. Mr Ratchett sees a sign at the the entrance to the Diner which says “If you can eat two of our Mega Burgers at one meal we will give you a £100 voucher to spend in our Casino”. Mr Ratchett decides to try and succeeds in eating two of the burgers. He goes to ask the restaurant manager where he can claim his voucer but the restaurant manager tells him that the advert is not serious and is just a marketing ploy.
    That afternoon the family go to the Adventure Playground. At the entrance there is an A4 size notice that says: “All patrons use these rides at their own risk. The management will not be liable for any loss or injury caused to those using these rides howsoever caused”. It turns out that a number of the rides are in fact unsuitable for Boris due to him being quite short. He is however able to go on the Sonic Death Run Rollercoaster. Unfortunately the harness Boris is wearing comes loose during the ride and he is thrown from the car. He breaks his legs and suffers other minor injuries. His camera and iPod, which he was carrying, are broken beyond repair.
    Utterly fed up and disappointed the Ratchet’s decide to leave the next morning and take Boris home with them when he is released from hospital later that day. They wish to know if they can claim compensation for what has happened to them.

  • Assignment exploring the policy and content of aspects of Occupational Health & Safety (OHS) laws in Australia
  • This paper answers the following question –
    Why is it thought that making ‘officers’ personally liable will improve the health and safety of workplaces? Critically assess the Model Bill’s provisions dealing with the duty of officers. Do you agree with them? Explain.

    The advances in science in the 20th century have led to rapid industrialization resulting in a large population working in the industries. These large populations of workers play a very important role in keeping the dice rolling in today’s modern world. It is very important to safe guard the rights of these workers and to ensure a safe and a non hazardous working environment for them. It is noted that more than two million people die due to work related accidents and issues (International Labour Organisation, 2010). In the mid 20th century, International Labour Organization (ILO) and the World Health Organization (WHO) came together to define occupational health and to ensure the safety of millions of workers across the globe. The joint ILO/WHO committee on occupational health adopted the following definition for occupational health in their first session in 1950 and later revised in the 12th session in 1995:

    “Occupational health should aim at: the promotion and maintenance of the highest degree of physical, mental and social well-being of workers in all occupations; the prevention amongst workers of departures from health caused by their working conditions; the protection of workers in their employment from risks resulting from factors adverse to health; the placing and maintenance of the worker in an occupational environment adapted to his physiological and psychological capabilities; and, to summarize, the adaptation of work to man and of each man to his job.”(NOHSAC, 2006)

    Governments across the globe believe that poor work place atmosphere and low-quality OSH performance result in direct and indirect losses to the nation. Industries also sustain huge losses. These losses occur due social security payments, healthcare costs, insurance levies or premiums, loss of productivity, investigation time, lost production, legal fees, fines, compensatory damages and lost goodwill from the workforce and from customers. (NOHSAC, 2006)

    The following report discusses the importance of employer in maintaining a safe work place atmosphere and ensuring the safety of the worker. The report briefs on the ‘duty of care’ acts in Occupational Health and Safety law in Australia. It mainly concentrates on the common belief that making the ‘officers’ (employer or the immediate supervisor at the workplace) liable to any accidents at workplace will improve the health and safety of workplaces. It also critically assesses the Model Bill’s provisions dealing with the duty of care.
