EmpireCLS Takes the Lead in Establishing Certified Health, Safety, and Disinfection Policies for Ground Transportation

USA, Secaucus, New Jersey. May 20, 2020

EmpireCLS, the leader in luxury ground transportation, is among the first to establish rigorous health, safety, and disinfection policies for ground transportation as the world starts moving during COVID-19.

While ride-sharing companies require drivers and passengers to wear face masks and keep windows open for ventilation, the reality is consumers are on high alert and seek much more stringent guidelines to keep the vehicles they ride in sanitized.

David Seelinger, Chairman and CEO of EmpireCLS, has spent many weeks speaking with International SOS and infectious disease specialists to determine optimum procedures for ongoing cleanliness.

"EmpireCLS has a responsibility to create a new standard and expectation for travelers to help ease any concerns as we navigate COVID-19," notes Mr. Seelinger. "We manage ground transportation for many five-star hotels like the Four Seasons New York and Beverly Hills Hotel, are also a preferred supplier for NetJets, Fortune 500 companies, entertainment companies, and tour managers; therefore, we need to ensure the safety of not just high-profile individuals, but of every guest who steps inside our cars or motor coaches."

EmpireCLS' new "Health, Safety, & Disinfecting Guidelines" have been reviewed, certified, and endorsed by Corporate Medical Advisors, A Member of The International SOS Group and Dr. Patrick Yu, a senior member of the CMA Physician Team. The guidelines incorporate a wide variety of processes including employee protocols, fleet disinfection protocols, global fleet compliance, in-cabin air, interaction protocols, and much more.

Mr. Seelinger adds the company is constantly monitoring federal, state, and local guidelines to ensure EmpireCLS' processes remain current and effective to ensure the safest environment possible for its guests and employees.

Hotel Law: Protecting Guest Privacy

Every business is obligated to protect their customers from identity theft but unfortunately, data breaches have become all too common. In an effort to protect a guest's right to privacy and to safeguard their personal data, the European Union passed a General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that could hold hotels legally liable for any breaches that expose a customer's sensitive personal information. Though the GDPR only pertains to EU citizens' data, any international business that mishandles their data can be legally responsible. Another legal issue of concern is the fight involving hotel "resort fees." Several states attorney generals have recently filed suit against two major hotel chains in an effort to litigate this practice. Their suit alleges that these companies are "engaged in deceptive and misleading pricing practices and their failure to disclose fees is in violation of consumer protection laws." The suit seeks to force the hotel chains to advertise the true price of their hotel rooms. There are several other legal issues that the industry is being forced to address. Sexual harassment prevention in the workplace is still top of mind for hotel employers-particularly in New York and California, which now statutorily require harassment training. Hotels and motels in California will also soon be required to train all their employees on human trafficking awareness. Immigration issues are also of major concern to hotel employers, especially in the midst of a severe labor shortage. The government is issuing fewer H2B visas for low-skilled workers, as well as J-1 visas for temporary workers. Though there is little hope for any comprehensive immigration reform, hotel lobbying groups are actively seeking legal remedies to alleviate this problem. These are just a few of the critical issues that the December issue of the Hotel Business Review will examine in the area of hotel law.
