DATE & TIME
Wednesday, June 23
12:00 p.m. - 12:45 p.m.
Join Greater Philadelphia Hotel Association hosting Offit Kurman Labor and Employment attorney, Katharine Batista, and ROAR for Good CEO, Yasmine Mustafa, for an interactive webinar on pertinent safety challenges faced by hotels as well as the required mandates you need to know and to resolve them.
In the hotel industry, there are specific safety issues that arise for the employees. You may have heard of the 58% of housekeepers who experience sexual harassment on the job or that hotel workers are 40% more likely to be injured than all other service workers. This has led to panic button legislation and mandates to help hoteliers protect their workforces and themselves. This webinar presentation and discussion between an Employment attorney and a CEO of a safety device technology company will be a unique and informative insight into the threats present as well as recommendations and safety precautions to mitigate risk and liability – not to mention take care of your staff.
During this webinar you will learn:
- Details on the safety concerns that face hotel and hospitality workforces
- The potential liability hotels face
- Specific panic button legislation hotel general managers must be aware of and their implications
- How hotels can comply with these mandates
- How these panic button systems work, including other uses to help with recruitment and risk mitigation
