Attorney Anthony Nelson recently published an article in Hotel Business highlighting how the Covid-19 pandemic wreaked havoc on the hospitality industry and created a significant number of layoffs. As hotels begin to bounce back from this devastation, Nelson notes that it is important to consider the legal issues that are likely to arise as employees return to work. Specifically, hotels should anticipate a rise in employment claims related to Covid-19 safety and health concerns.

Nelson highlights the following issues to consider:

  • Accommodating employees with disabilities and underlying health conditions
  • Accommodating employees who refuse vaccines due to religion
  • Dealing with an employee refusing to follow the return-to-work plan
