The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted a number of ethical issues for these industries, including:

 — The health and safety of front-line hospitality and tourism workers, including mental health concerns.
 — Fair compensation of hospitality and tourism workers for additional risks and responsibilities.
 — COVID precautions (health) for customers of hotels and restaurants.
 — Customers cancelling reservations have expected refunds to be full and swift, which has not always happened.
 — Front-line workers may have been asked to enforce COVID-related restrictions on customer behaviour.
 — Job security for front-line workers as a challenge, as restaurants and hotels shift gears, adapted, and in many cases closed either temporarily or permanently.
 — The changing role of gig economy” workers in these industries
 — Vaccination policies and other precautions when government policy & public-health guidance has varied.
