The introduction of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 in the UK, and other similar legislation around the world, places onus on businesses to report on their anti-slavery provisions. Hotel brands have been doing a great deal already to address modern slavery within the sector.
The Stop Slavery Hotel Industry Network, coordinated by Shiva Foundation, is working to address the disconnect between activities that happen at different levels of the industry by bringing international brands, hotel owners and management companies together to discuss the issue of modern slavery.
In 2018 Shiva Foundation and the BHA will be working on producing a report which sets out of the learnings from the Network. This Call for Evidence seeks submissions from all BHA member companies and other interested stakeholders to ensure that the final report includes the full range of views and evidence across the UK hospitality industry.
Respondents can make submissions in confidence on request.
