UK labour provision in the food supply chain is regulated by the Gangmasters and Labour Abuse Authority and non-compliance with the GLAA licensing regime can lead to a licence being removed resulting in an inability to trade in the sector. Additionally, compliant businesses are at risk of infiltration by unscrupulous individuals who will seek to supply trafficked and exploited workers which could lead to prosecution and reputation damage.
The challenges inherent in the supply of agency labour combined with increased human rights risks caused by labour shortages require an increased focus on due diligence to improve ethical standards, both by labour providers keen to differentiate themselves in a crowded market, and by labour users intent on protecting their workforce and reputation.
Join Elysia McCaffrey, the new Chief Executive of the GLAA, and David Camp, ALP Chief Executive to learn how ALP and GLAA are working in partnership to provide business with support and training which will help you to navigate this challenging environment.
