Modern Slavery Bill: Overseas Domestic Workers

The amendment  to the Modern Slavery Bill in the names of the Cross-bench peer Lord Hylton, the Lord Bishop of Carlisle, the labour Baroness Royall of Blaisdon and the Conservative Baroness Hanham was carried by the House of Lords on 25 February 2015.  The amendment restores the rights of overseas domestic workers to change employer.  The House of Commons will now be asked to give its view on the amendment, which, in the words of the Lord Hylton, closes “ this loophole for abuse which has existed for so many years.”
