Modern slavery can take many forms including the trafficking of people, forced labour, servitude and slavery.

Traffickers and unscrupulous recruitment agencies target a range of industries including those involved in hospitality.

The hospitality industry along with many other sectors finds itself subject to increased media and civil society scrutiny. For a customer facing business it is vitally important that the reputation of UK hotels is maintained both with the general public and national and local government. Ensuring best practice with regard to recruitment and employment of staff and agency workers can help deliver a sustainable future for the industry
