Man stopped from providing workers to food processing factory

A man has been prevented from supplying workers without a licence following investigations by the Gangmasters and Labour Abuse Authority (GLAA) in Devon.

In a statement, released yesterday, the GLAA revealed the man, a Romanian national living in Sidmouth, has been served with a Labour Market Enforcement Undertaking (LMEU) after providing labour to food processing factories through a recruitment agency.

The LMEU has been signed and will remain in place for one year.

LMEUs were introduced as part of the Immigration Act in November 2016. They can be imposed when someone breaches the law.

The GLAA currently has 15 active LMEUs along with the UK’s first Labour Market Enforcement Order (LMEO) for a couple who supplied workers to food factories in Leicester without a licence.

A GLAA spokesperson told Recruiter they are not in a position to reveal the identity of the man who was served the LMEU.
