Subject: Employment Compliance Law for Bollman Hotels

The conversation I am here to formulate is about employment laws for Bollman Hotels. According to my notes, Mr. Galvan is planning to start a Hotel service in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

SBREFA was formed to help the small business in understanding and compliance with regulations. OSHA has levied fines of various amounts for the violation of OSHA regulations. These fines can differ based on the severity of the violation (Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996, n.d).The Texas Labor Code Anti-Discrimination Provisions Texas like many other states has its own laws for employment discrimination but employers who abide by the federal statute will be safe under the Texas state law as well. The reason for this is that the Texas Labor Code Anti-Discrimination Provisions are parallel with the Federal Discrimination guidelines. However, there is a trend throughout cities and counties with America that allow these local municipalities to have their own ordinances. In Texas, local government can and sometimes do establish their own anti-discrimination rules. In the city of Austin, several city ordinances make it unlawful to deny access to public accommodation or discriminate in employment on the basis of gender identity or sexual orientation specifically to lesbians and gays.
