“CLE: Understanding and Managing the Disruption of the Sharing Economy”

December 11 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

| $15

Photo of attorney Jonathan M. HuertaThe concepts of renting someone’s summer home or carpooling home during spring break are not novel.  However, technological advances have greatly lowered the transaction costs for both users and suppliers, thereby exponentially increasing ease and use of a sharing-economy business model.

Basically anyone with a smartphone can now arrange their own private driver to take them to their “boutique” home away from home.  While the concepts are not new, the implementation and businesses, or facilitators, of such models are, and with them come legal questions.

Who, if anyone, must collect and remit local TOT (Transient Occupancy Taxes) with an online vacation rental?  Who carries insurance coverage for passengers of a Transportation Network Company?  Who regulates these sharing-economy entities, state or local government, and does the Federal System preempt?

In the session, attorney Jonathan Huerta will discuss:

  • History of sharing-economy and its meteoric rise
  • Online Vacation Rental Marketplace
    • Public-Sector Concerns
    • Private-Sector Concerns
  • Transportation Network Companies
    • Public-Sector Concerns
    • Private-Sector Concerns
  • Statewide Governance
  • Local Governance

This event is open to the public, space permitting, and offers 1 hour of substantive credit for participants.

Registration ($15) is required. Please contact Robin Hester at 610-332-0390 for information.
