GLAA prevents man illegally supplying workers with enforcement undertaking

Gangmasters and Labour Abuse Authority (GLAA) investigators have prevented a man living in Nottingham from supplying workers without a licence.

A GLAA statement, released this morning, reveals a Labour Market Enforcement Undertaking (LMEU) has been served to a Romanian national, who attempted to supply workers to the food-processing sector in Nottinghamshire without having a GLAA licence.

The Gangmasters (Licensing) Act requires people to have a licence to provide workers in the GLAA-regulated sectors of agriculture, horticulture, shellfish gathering, food processing and associated packaging.

LMEUs were introduced in November 2016 as part of the Immigration Act and can be imposed when someone breaches the law. The undertakings feature a signed agreement to comply with the GLAA and its rules.

The LMEU has been signed by the individual and will remain in place for two years.
