GLAA guidance on victimisation of workers

11 September 2018

Recently there have been a number of cases of prospective workers being essentially ‘conned’ into paying fees in the host country for work in the UK which when the worker arrives does not exist. In several cases the workers have turned up at a licensed agency seeking work, as advised by the individual who is seeking to mislead them. The labour providers have taken the workers on so that they are not left homeless and without any means of supporting themselves.

Labour providers have raised concerns that they may be encouraging criminality by taking on these workers, as those supplying the workers are generally based overseas and have no relationship with the receiving business.

The Gangmasters and Labour Abuse Authority has produced its latest GLAA Brief, Issue 57 – Victimisation of workers which sets out the steps that labour providers should take if approached by workers who have been sent by an unknown third party.
