Another Attack On Hotel Staff Member Results In Suspension Of Supervisor, Agreement To Provide “Panic Buttons”

Post to Twitter

The Hotel Pierre, site of another reported sexual attack on an employee, has suspended a housekeeping because that person apparently only entered the report into a logbook. A manager saw the report the next morning and called highers-up, who then called police. The hotel’s management have also decided, after consultation with the union that represents hotel employees, to provide staff with panic devices. The Hotel Pierre report follows on the incident at New York’s luxurious Sofitel hotel, after which Dominique Strauss-Kohn, former head at the International Monetary Fund, was arrested. Out on bail, he awaits trial. (Apparently, the Sofitel is also installing panic devices). More information on the Hotel Pierre story here.
