Webinar: Gangmasters and Labour Abuse Authority (GLAA)
This is an invitation to attend a webinar hosted by the Gangmasters and Labour Abuse Authority (GLAA) on Tuesday 2 March from 11am-1pm, which may be of interest to some BUIRA colleagues.
The GLAA (www.gla.gov.uk) regulates labour providers in certain industries including agriculture; investigates labour abuse working across all sectors alongside bodies such as the Minimum Wage enforcement team and operates with other law enforcers to deter and disrupt criminality around forced labour.
During the pandemic regular GLAA liaison meetings with its licence holders and labour users, and with NGO and worker representative bodies have moved to webinars. These allow for a much large (virtual) attendance.
The webinar on 2nd March will be discussing a range of issues focusing on labour exploitation. These include working with partners to prevent exploitation in the poultry industry; support given to victims through legitimate employment opportunities, and research undertaken by the University of Nottingham into the impact of the Covid pandemic on Rumanian seasonal workers.
