Key provisions include severe daily workload limitations for room attendants, required daily room sanitizing and cleaning, mandatory provision of personal security devices (e.g., "panic buttons") and training, new time off requirements for certain employees, severe overtime limitations, the expansion of existing Hotel minimum wage requirements.
