I would like to know if someone can give some advice or opnion about copyright when you create a wine list. This is my case:
I started to work the past December as a Restaurant Manager and Sommelier for a small restaurant that is a franchise in a hotel in New Zealand, when I read my contract and job description didn't say anything about create or update the wine/drink list and I talked with the GM about to create a new one, he was agreed, but the company will not pay extra for that, so we just agreed that it will be my creation and I have the right to updated and modify, just with the condition that I had to let the GM knows every time if I want to do any modifications.
Everything seems to be ok, until I had holidays at the end of June,I left the restaurant for 2 weeks and couple of days prior my arrival, the GM send me an email saying that "he did some modifications to the wine list" I feel very frustrated, because why he wait until my holidays to change it without to discuss it with me first. Since I arrived I haven't had the chance to talk to him about that situation, but when this happens I would like to know the best way to discuss with him.
Do I have any rights for my wine list? There is any way that I can do a complaint against the GM and the people who helped him to do all this modifications without my concern? Or any legal steps that I have to follow?
Any help, advice or ideas, I will be very grateful!
Thank you ver much in advance!
