Egypt’s hotels fight back against sexual harassment with new regulations

The Egyptian Hotel Association has issued recommendations to all hotels to confront sexual harassment after receiving complaints from hotel workers.

The EHA warned that sexual harassment is a criminal offense, with a punishment of up to four years in prison.

The association told its members to be precise in selecting its workers and not recruit a new employee until they have passed the necessary training courses.

TheĀ  EHA also recommended educating all employees on the seriousness of sexual harassment and how it can negatively impact Egypt’s tourism reputation, alongside the administrative penalties that include cancellation of the license and compensation for the victims.

It stressed the necessity of monitoring the behavior of employees and dismissing them if proven of misconduct after being warned.
