Please find below the abstract of “The Consequences of the Brexit Vote on Management Attitudes to Recruitment in the Hospitality Industry” by Katy Ferris, Derek Cameron, Andrew Jenkins & James Marson, published in Business Law Review, issue 4, 2018 edited by Lisa Zoltowska


This article investigates the perceptions of managers in the hospitality industry to the Brexit vote and its implications for their recruitment strategies. A survey instrument was used to ascertain perceptions of challenges and opportunities around key themes including current recruitment; the implications of removal of free movement principles on immigration, employment and retention; the effects of the decision on salaries, supplier contracts and renegotiations, and its effects on non-national staff. The article presents the findings of the surveys and offers suggestions as to issues the Brexit negotiating team might take into consideration when determining the British withdrawal strategy.
