New immigration rules came into effect on 1st January 2021 and introduced a number of changes to the way employers are required to carry out their right to work checks. Since then, there have been several updates to official guidance including a new right to work checklist. ALP have worked closely with the UK Home Office on creating practical guidance for members, and also getting answers to your frequently asked questions.
This webinar will cover the latest updates and ensure you understand how to establish a valid statutory excuse for all workers including:
– EU workers who have not received a decision on their EUSS application
– EU workers who have not yet applied to the EUSS
– EU workers travelling to the UK after June 2021
UK labour provision in the food supply chain is regulated by the Gangmasters and Labour Abuse Authority and non-compliance with the GLAA licensing regime can lead to a licence being removed resulting in an inability to trade in the sector. Additionally, compliant businesses are at risk of infiltration by unscrupulous individuals who will seek to supply trafficked and exploited workers which could lead to prosecution and reputation damage.
The challenges inherent in the supply of agency labour combined with increased human rights risks caused by labour shortages require an increased focus on due diligence to improve ethical standards, both by labour providers keen to differentiate themselves in a crowded market, and by labour users intent on protecting their workforce and reputation.
Join Elysia McCaffrey, the new Chief Executive of the GLAA, and David Camp, ALP Chief Executive to learn how ALP and GLAA are working in partnership to provide business with support and training which will help you to navigate this challenging environment.
– What the new GLAA Compliance Strategy means for your business

The Employment Agency Standards Inspectorate (EAS) is the government body responsible for enforcing labour provider standards for the supply of labour to businesses outside of the GLAA regulated sector.
Many labour providers supply workers to multiple sectors and so are open to inspection and enforcement activity by both EAS and GLAA, although EAS will not inspect labour supply in the regulated sector, and GLAA licensing standards only apply within the regulated sector.
Join Rhys Jones from the EAS Inspectorate and our own David Camp to learn::
