The CampCalNOW RV Park and Campground Alliance (CampCalNOW) will be hosting a webinar tomorrow (Dec. 16) at 11 a.m. (PST), on the liability and pitfalls of utilizing work campers at a park. Insurance specialist Damian Petty, from Leavitt Recreation & Hospitality Insurance, and RV park attorney Dan Rudderow, from the Rudderow Law Group, will be hosting this webinar.
Over the years, many park owners have utilized the cost-effective option of hiring “temporary workers” to help with various jobs around their park, notes a CampCalNOW synopsis of the webinar. These jobs often include maintenance and landscaping work and/or assisting with the general management of the park.
Hiring workers on a temporary basis, however, can also result in an array of legal troubles. Questions arise whether the person hired is an employee or independent contractor, if an employment contract is required, if the wage and hour laws are being complied with, whether there is workers’ compensation available in the event of an injury, and if the worker can be compensated with free housing in lieu of wages. Other issues arise concerning adequate insurance and how the park may evict a resident who also worked for the park.
During the 45-minute webinar, all these issues and more will be tackled.
