PDF Southern California Hotel & Lodging Conference

Lara A. H. Shortz presented "Sexual Harassment: It's a Hospitality Issue Too," at the Southern California Hotel and Lodging Conference on Thursday, May 24 at 11:00 am until noon. 

Given the salacious daily headlines, sexual harassment and assault in the workplace is rightfully front-of-mind in workplaces throughout the country. This is particularly true in the hospitality industry, where hoteliers face threats of liability for (1) sexual assaults by guests upon hotel and resort staff, and (2) sexual harassment of employees by coworkers.

This session offered some key takeaways; most notably, what hoteliers should do in response to sexual assault or harassment claims, and how they might avoid them in the first place.
