Leavitt Recreation and Hospitality Insurance (LHI) has released a resource for park owners that will help them navigate the commercial property claims process.

The “Guide to Navigating Commercial Property Claims” is free to download and includes an overview of the roles parties play amid a commercial property loss; recommendations on what actions to take before, during and after a loss; information on commercial property coverage; and examples of common pitfalls insureds frequently make that can cause claim delays.

“In the event of a catastrophic commercial property loss, the process of getting your business back up and running can be overwhelming,” states the introduction to the guide. “Although infrequent, these types of claims can severely impact operations, earnings, team members and the company’s reputation. Responding to a loss can seem daunting in the moment, especially considering the first few hours following a loss are some of the most critical. For these reasons, it is important to have a plan in place prior to a loss occurring.”

The guide is free to download. To download the guide, click here. 

LHI also released a checklist that will help park owners prepare “legally compliant interview questions” in February.

“The checklist outlines steps to help employers comply with federal and state fair employment laws that affect the process of interviewing job applicants,” notes the Leavitt team. “It also includes general information about laws that protect applicants against discrimination based on certain personal characteristics, disabilities and medical conditions, as well as laws that aim to promote equal pay by prohibiting questions about an applicant’s past salary or wages.”

The checklist is divided into four distinct sections:

  1. Section 1 provides tips for designing interview questions without regard to any applicable laws.
  2. Section 2 discusses how to identify and flag problematic questions under federal law.
  3. Section 3 discusses how to identify and flag problematic questions under state laws.
  4. Section 4 provides information about legal exceptions and includes guidelines for refining interview questions.
