From May 2017, the Gangmasters and Labour Abuse Authority (GLAA) took on the role and remit of the Gangmaster Licensing Authority (GLA). It was also granted police-style powers under the Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984 (PACE), to investigate labour abuse and exploitation across all aspects of the UK labour market as set out in the Immigration Act 2016.
Failure and non-compliance of these acts can have serious consequences and fines associated with them.
