IHRSA Webinar to Address Legal Issues Related to Virus

IHRSA today announced a webinar (Wednesday, March 25, at 3 p.m. EDT) that will deal with legal and staffing issues for fitness club owners. This webinar will be made available as an on-demand video for those who cannot join live. 

It will be presented by Adam Sloustcher, attorney, Fisher & Phillips, LLP, San Diego, and Aaron Moore, director of operations, VIDA Fitness, Washington, D.C. During the first half of the webinar, Sloustcher will discuss common questions that club operators are facing related to their legal obligations and protecting their clubs, while Moore will speak from experience on the practices his company has put in place at their seven locations across the Washington, D.C., area to protect their staff and members, and to create a new online experience for members as they workout at home. 

Learning objectives:

  • Identify areas where you may need to do further research and consult with your legal team to ensure you’re protecting your business
  • Learn how to properly pay your staff during the pandemic
  • Gain insights from the experiences of a club executive
  • Discover strategies to keep staff members engaged
  • In tough times, it’s not only crucial to have a business plan in place to survive, but also knowledge of legal requirements and how it impacts your club.

As a member-owned, not-for-profit trade association, IHRSA releases most of its products primarily to the IHRSA membership. In an emergency situation like this, the entire fitness industry is one family, so these resources are available for all fitness businesses.

"The health and fitness industry has never backed away from a challenge,” said Joe Moore, IHRSA president and CEO, in a statement. “IHRSA stands ready to help the industry through this worldwide problem. It’s what associations do. It’s why we exist."
