What if a lifeguard calls out of their shift?

When a LG messages you about not being able to make it to their shift, please ask for the reason why. After they present you with the reason there are two outcomes that will happen. Please follow according to the reasons below:


If a lifeguard is stating that they are sick and/or had a medical emergency YOU will take the following steps:

  1. Please unpublish the team member’s shift on “When I Work
  2. Make a carbon copy of it
  3. Call your respective Regional Manager (Do NOT text), Joey Traviglia, who will help coordinate coverage.
  4. Afterward, post in the “PSSC Chat” on When I Work and let the staff know there is an open shift available.
  5. If you have the time to do so, reach out to other lifeguards in the loop and ask if they can pick up the shift.
  6. It is possible that you may have to cover the shift and the office staff (or your Regional Manager) will assist with breaks.


Personal/ Fail to Update Availability

If a lifeguard was put into a shift they cannot work( i.e. did not update availability, has a party, etc…), it is THEIR responsibility to find coverage. Here are the steps THEY should take:

  1. Drop the shift
  2. Message “HOJO CHAT”
  3. Message people individually
  4. Ask the MOD of that shift for advice
  5. Show up to their shift!


Disciplinary Actions

  • Fail to not get in touch with the MOD or Regional is a No Call, No show (NCNS) , and result in a Written Warning on their profile. Please reach out to the Regional manager so they can get the proper paperwork.
  • Fail to show up to their shift after they called the MOD or Regional is a No Show (NS), and results in a Verbal Warning on their profile.

What if I cannot make it to my shift?

If you notice you are starting to feel sick or if you wake up sick, and you cannot go to work, please contact your regional manager immediately. The sooner you inform us, the easier it is to find coverage. Once you have done that, please drop your shift, and then sent out a message through When I Work to see if anyone can pick up your shift.

What is a “Service Animal”?

Service animals are defined as dogs that are individually trained to do work or perform tasks for people with disabilities. Examples of such work/ tasks include:

  • guiding people who are blind
  • alerting people who are deaf
  • pulling a wheelchair
  • alerting and protecting a person who is having a seizure
  • reminding a person with mental illness to take prescribed medications
  • calming a person with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) during an anxiety attack
  • or performing other duties

Where are Service Animal(s) allowed?

Under the ADA, State and local governments, businesses, and nonprofit organizations that serve the public generally must allow service animals to accompany people with disabilities in all areas of the facility where the public is allowed to go.

What are staff allowed to ask?

  1. Is the dog a service animal required because of a disability?
  2. What work or task has the dog been trained to perform?

Can I ask a person with a disability to remove their Service Animal?

A person with a disability cannot be asked to remove their service animal from the premises unless:

  1. The dog is out of control and the handler does not take effective action to control it
  2. The dog is not housebroken.

When there is a legitimate reason to ask that a service animal be removed, staff must offer the person with the disability the opportunity to obtain goods or services without the animal’s presence.

Other points to consider:

  • Establishments that sell or prepare food must generally allow service animals in public areas even if state or local health codes prohibit animals on the premises.
  • People with disabilities who use service animals cannot be isolated from other patrons, treated less favorably than other patrons, or charged fees that are not charged to other patrons without animals. In addition, if a business requires a deposit or fee to be paid by patrons with pets, it must waive the charge for service animals.
  • If a business such as a hotel normally charges guests for damage that they cause, a customer with a disability may also be charged for damage caused by himself or his service animal.
  • Staff are not required to provide care for or supervision of a service animal.
