BOSTON — When housekeepers at three Boston area Hyatt Hotels
were asked to train new employees, none of them suspected that they would be training their replacements, according to The Boston Globe
Many of the laid-off employees had been with Hyatt for more than a decade and earned upwards of $15 per hour plus health, dental, and 401(k) benefits, the story noted.
According to the story, Hyatt officials confirmed the layoffs at the three hotels, but declined to say whether the chain was considering similar moves in other locations across the country.
The dismissed workers received two weeks of pay upon termination, plus one week of pay for every year they worked at the Hyatt up to five or 10 years, depending on the hotel, the story added.
