You have the right to appeal if you disagree with a decision we have made.
You can appeal against a GLA decision if:
- Your application for a licence is refused
- You are granted a licence with Additional Licence Conditions (ALCs)
- ALCs are placed on your licence
- Your licence is revoked
- A licence transfer request is refused
If you believe we have made a factual mistake which has led to a refusal, you can email email@example.com for a review. If your licence has been revoked you will need to contact Her Majesty's Courts and Tribunals Service (HMCTS).
The GLA appeals process for England, Scotland and Wales is run by HMCTS. They are independent of the GLA. In Northern Ireland the appeals process is run by the Office of the Industrial Tribunals and the Fair Employment Tribunal (OITFET).
There is no provision for costs to be awarded under The (Gangmasters Appeals) Regulations 2006. This means that there is no fee to lodge an appeal against a decision of the GLA, but if you decide to submit an appeal you will be responsible for your costs in preparing and pursing the appeal. When appealing a GLA decision you are not required to instruct legal representation, if you chose to do so you will also be responsible for covering the cost of your legal representation. The GLA will also be responsible for meeting its own costs when responding to the appeal.
This position was recently confirmed by an Appointed Person in case number 117.E.RV.
