This research paper documents the findings of a comprehensive and unique project investigating the treatment of hospitality workers in Ireland. Drawing on a dual survey-interview method the study explores aspects of worker treatment from employment rights, to experiences of bullying and harassment, to opportunities for voice etc. Drawing on employment relations theory generally, and Budd and Bhave's (2008) 'frames of reference' in particular, the project aims to provide evidence of worker treatment in hospitality, to use theoretical lens's to make sense of the data, ultimately informing policy and practice in this sector.
