GLA amends statement relating to Qualitycourse licence refusal
Wed, 11 Jun 2014
The Gangmasters Licensing Authority (GLA) issued a revised statement yesterday afternoon [10 June] relating to the refusal of the licence application for Qualitycourse, part of staffing provider Transline Group, as originally issued Monday [9 June].
The original release stated that Qualitycourse had been refused a licence by the GLA for operating a travel and expenses scheme that led to workers receiving less that the legal minimum wage.
However, the amended version said the licence was refused by the GLA because Qualitycourse had refused to provide sufficient details relating to the travel and expenses scheme.
The GLA stated that the amendment was made to enable Qualitycourse to provide evidence that confirms the workers whose records were examined were apprentices and that the requirement to pay National Minimum Wage was not breached.
The GLA will publish the results of this enquiry later this week.
