Auro Hotels Elevates Cleanliness Protocols and Service Standards, Providing Guests the Confidence They Desire to Resume Travel During the Covid-19 Pandemic.

USA, Greenville, South Carolina. June 01, 2020

Auro Hotels announces the implementation of its Connecting Safely Program throughout all of their hotels in the U.S. and India. The program is specifically designed to protect the health and safety of hotel guests and Auro associates.

Working closely with state and local health authorities, as well as affiliated brands such as Marriott, Hilton and Hyatt, Auro's Connecting Safely Program is based on the foundation of SHIELD: Safety, Health, Infrastructure, Environment, Logistics and Distancing.

DJ Rama, President & CEO, Auro Hotels, commented: "Protecting the health, wellbeing and safety of our guests and associates is our top priority. Our new Connecting Safely program strengthens our already stringent cleanliness protocols to inspire trust and meet the changing needs and expectations of our hotel guests."

Auro associates must complete mandatory and ongoing training for safety and cleaning protocols. Plus, all associates must undergo a daily health screening process.

In addition to the already stringent cleanliness and safety procedures, the Connecting Safely program includes many new methods guests can expect to see throughout all Auro locations to include:

· Enhanced sanitizing process for all surfaces

· Social distancing operating procedures

· Sanitizing stations liberally placed throughout the hotel

· Alternatives to standard buffets and non-reusable menus

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.
