GLAA prevents two gangmasters from illegally supplying workers

Two people have been prevented from supplying workers without a licence in separate investigations by the Gangmasters and Labour Abuse Authority (GLAA) in the West Midlands.

In a statement released yesterday, The GLAA revealed Labour Market Enforcement Undertakings (LMEUs) have been served by their investigators to a Bulgarian woman living in Telford and a Romanian man in Evesham.

Both investigations, although unconnected, relate to the food-processing sector.

The LMEUs have been signed by the individuals and will remain in place for two years for the woman and one year for the man.

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.
