These and other examples have led some club operators to consider introducing non-competition rules for workers, although there are no documents to support the need for more non-competition today than in the past. It could prohibit employees from working for certain competitors or other similar types of institutions that would compete, Steinmeyer said. If the gym was a CrossFit, the non-compete clause could prohibit employees from working for another CrossFit, but not for a yoga studio. Staff should be trained first and then continuously, especially when new information emerges or when technological advances are made.
It is especially important to develop a social media policy and train staff on what should be shared on social media (including photos or videos) on social media (including photos or videos) and how and when customers should or should not interact with customers on social media….
