Hospitality Work Places A Strain On The Body
It’s no secret that the hospitality and travel industries require hard work. Waiters are on their feet for most of the day; hotel cleaning staff often have to bend and stoop in order make beds and clean bath tubs; flight service workers face long hours, falling luggage, and disgruntled passengers. All of this work takes a toll on the body that can eventually make it difficult or impossible to work. If you’ve sustained an injury on the job at a restaurant, a hotel, airline or a similar venue, we can help you assert your rights as a worker.
In fact, the Law Offices of Lester Friedman are uniquely well qualified to represent hospitality workers. Attorney Joshua Friedman attended Cornell University’s School of Hotel Administration and worked in the hotel industry for years before becoming an attorney. From that experience, he knows first-hand the kinds of challenges faced by hotel workers and understands the mindset of hotel administrators when they receive workers’ compensation claims.
