REC Webinar - Reform of the GLA
The Gangmasters and Labour Abuse Authority is a newly reformed Government body created to protect vulnerable workers. We are evolving from the Gangmasters Licensing Authority (GLA) and, under our new guise, we will get more police-style powers to investigate labour offences and a much-extended remit. We anticipate being fully operational within three months.
Our current Chief Executive, Paul Broadbent, is to retain charge of the GLAA and he has been out and about across the whole of the UK in recent weeks explaining the changes to interested stakeholders. However, due to limited dates and capacity at the events some of you may not have been able to get along to see him, or you may have found your venue of choice to be fully-booked. If you missed out for whatever reason, or if you attended and have colleagues who you think would also benefit from the information, then we have good news.
The CEO will be open to question about the new GLAA again but this time in a live webinar, which is open to all, courtesy of our friends at the REC – the Recruitment and Employment Confederation.
REC Chief Executive Kevin Green will host the FREE, hour-long lunch-time event which starts at 1pm on 21 March 2017. He will be quizzing Paul about how the new GLAA will work within the UK labour market, what issues have been identified already and where and what the new organisation plans to do to stamp out labour exploitation. The webinar is interactive too, meaning you can send in any burning questions you have and time permitting they will be answered live during the event or by email afterwards.
