What you should expect at work
Your labour provider must have a GLA licence to work legally in the regulated sectors.
To apply successfully for a licence, labour providers need to show they meet the conditions of the GLA licensing standards. The standards are all legal requirements, to protect workers from poor treatment and exploitation.
Labour providers must continue to comply with the licensing standards to keep their licence. If you are concerned that a labour provider is failing to meet the standards or is operating without a licence you should contact us. These are not only the conditions of the GLA licence, they are also your legal rights – your employer has a responsibility to ensure you are treated fairly.
All current licensed gangmasters are listed on the GLA public register.
There is no immediate impact for workers in the UK from the decision to leave the EU. Workers from other EU countries continue to enjoy full freedom of movement in the UK labour market, and equal employment law rights, with other UK workers. Any infringement of those rights, or discriminatory practices, may constitute worker exploitation. Such issues should be reported to the GLA. Any future impacts to the rights of migrant workers will be published on this website.
