Statement on Modern Slavery and Preventing Labour Exploitation
This statement sets out the Strand Palace Hotel’s commitment and actions to developing and adopting a proactive approach to tackling modern slavery including all forms of labour exploitation within our business. This statement relates to actions and activities during the financial year 1st January 2019 to 31st December 2019.
Labour exploitation is exploitation of job applicants and workers by third party individuals or gangs other than the employer or labour provider including rogue individuals working within these businesses but without the knowledge of management. It includes forced labour and human trafficking for labour exploitation, payment for work-finding services and work-related exploitation such as forced use of accommodation. It is understood that it is often well hidden by the perpetrators with victims reluctant to come forward.
The hotel also recognises the responsibility that it shares with its suppliers to tackle forced labour.
This statement has been approved by the Hotel’s Senior Management Team who will review and update it annually.
