Pine: Four Seasons Ko Olina employees’ health coverage extended
HONOLULU, HAWAI‘I — Honolulu City Councilmember Kym Pine this morning was assured that the new, Hong Kong-based owner of Four Seasons Resort O‘ahu at Ko Olina will extend employee health coverage through November.
“As has been reported, the local owners of Four Seasons Ko Olina sold their ownership share to their partners in Hong Kong. I am grateful for Four Seasons’ announcement this morning, on a phone call to all employees, that it will continue to pay for employee health insurance in November. Unlike many employers who have had to lay off or furlough employees, the owners have paid employee health insurance since the hotel closure in March. I will continue to work with the new full owners to try my best to convince them to do their best to take care of our workers as long as they can, despite their monthly losses.”
Councilmember Kym Pine represents residents of District One (ʻEwa, ʻEwa Beach, Kapolei, Honokai Hale, Ko ʻOlina, Nānākuli, Mā‘ili, Wai‘anae, Mākaha, Kea‘au, Mākua) and is chair of the City Council’s Committee on Business Economic Development and Tourism.
