Implementation of POSH Act, 2013 at Hotels & Hospitality Sector
At Ungender, we work with every industry with a specialized focus and customized implementation approach. Similarly, the understanding and implementation of the Prevention of Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace Act, 2013 has been interpreted for this industry to ensure the safety of the women stakeholders in these workplaces.
Nature of business when it comes to hotels, bars, restaurants, spa/retreat centers and resorts put a critical focus on customer service, combined with a work culture that puts the needs of the customer first and employees later. This employee group is overlooked for its basic safety and integrity needs and is comprised of low-wage employees in the hotel industry, especially those who work as housekeepers and at the customer facing roles. Too often, this employee group is forced to deal with suggestive comments, inappropriate touching and other lewd behavior by guests as they go about their jobs.
Hospitality industry trends show a preferential treatment towards guests over the safety and health of their low-income workers. As a result, employee groups of this industry are frequently hesitant to report these incidents for fear of losing their livelihood.
