San Bernardino, CA – A Days Inn franchisee is expected to pay $123,678 after Department of Labor found non-compliance issues.
Daniel Pasquil, director of the Wage and Hour Division’s West Covina District Office, explains that “we encourage other hotel and motel employers to learn from this case, review their own practices and make diligent efforts to comply in the future with federal employment laws.”
Experts agree that Department of Labor has taken notice of noncompliance in the hotel industry. But it’s not all about the fines, they are also helping to remedy violations, inform consumers and provide compliance assistance.
Anthony Trombetta says, “Do you know how many steps someone will take to reach a garbage can? The cleaning professionals at Disney know.”
He explains that better training and professionalism in the cleaning and janitorial industry can reduce turnover and improve overall costs as people buy-in to cleanliness. He says that people actually pick up after themselves when the place is already organized to stay clean.
