GLAA film urges employees to ‘Do the Right Thing’

The Gangmasters and Labour Abuse Authority (GLAA) is encouraging employers to show their staff a film that tells them what to do if they suspect modern slavery in their workplace.

The seven minute-long film made by the GLAA, entitled Do the Right Thing, focuses on three men, who appear despondent and scared after being dropped off for work at an unnamed company.

The film reruns the opening scene three times with different scenarios aimed at demonstrating the consequences of a) doing nothing, b) doing the wrong thing and c) ultimately doing the right thing.

GLAA director of strategy Darryl Dixon says: “Our role is to work in partnership to protect vulnerable and exploited workers, and this film is a prime example of our desire to work with employers to help identify the signs of labour exploitation and then, more importantly, show them the right way to deal with it.

“All businesses, whether they are large multi-national companies or small family-run firms, have a responsibility and a duty of care to their workers to ensure they are being treated fairly.”

Do the Right Thing was made with financial support from Stronger Together – a multi-agency initiative aimed at reducing modern slavery. The film, along with training materials, can be viewed and downloaded here.
