EMPLOYEE HOUSING RULES AND REGULATIONS
1) INVENTORY AND INITIAL INSPECTION
Employee shall inspect the unit within 72 hours of commencement of the Residence License. If Employee should fail to submit documentation of damages to Management, it shall be agreed by Employee and Management that Employee completed said inspection and found all items to be satisfactory and free of damages. Furniture must not be removed from any Employee Housing unit at any time.
2) EMPLOYEE RESPONSIBILITY
All Employees within a unit are responsible for what occurs within their unit. Employees are responsible for the actions of their guests or visitors. Any damage or illegal activity that occurs in a unit for which a specific individual does not take responsibility will be considered the responsibility of all Employees of that unit. A price list may be provided to you upon request.
3) FIRE DETECTION
If Employee removes a smoke or carbon monoxide (CO) detector from the ceiling or wall, or tampers with the detector in any way, the responsible Employee will be charged a $100 fine per detector. Only use fire pull stations and fire extinguishers in the event of a fire. If no specific Employee takes responsibility, the fine will be assessed evenly among all Employees in the unit. Discharging the unit fire extinguisher without a valid reason is cause to require that employee permanently vacate the unit. When you hear the main alarm, please vacate the building. Wait outside for security to signal the all clear. Do not hang any items from or over the sprinklers. If a sprinkler head is released due to Employee’s actions, Employee will be responsible for all costs associated with damages to the affected area.

If illegal substances are found in any unit common area in which an Employee of that unit does not take responsibility for, all Employees of that unit will be required to permanently vacate the unit. Regardless of local ordinances, Vail Resorts follows Federal Law and defines controlled substances by the Federal Controlled Substances Act.
