CHICAGO– Employees at Chicago hotels now have “panic buttons” to summon assistance if required.

A regulation that took effect this week needs hotels to provide the buttons. They’re meant to secure housekeeping staff and others who work alone in guest spaces from sexual harassment and other crimes.

A survey of 500 workers carried out by Unite Here Regional 1 found 58 percent reported they’ve experienced a minimum of one occurrence of sexual harassment by visitors. The most typical was visitors answering their door naked.

The buttons trigger a message to the cellular phone of the staff member’s manager, manager and personnels department and provide the worker’s name and area.

Karen Kent is president of Unite Here Local 1. She states it’s “a new day for females operating in Chicago hotels.”
