Who has a GLAA licence
The GLAA public register lists the labour providers who are licensed.
How to check that a business is licensed
Online - Open the GLAA Public Register.
You can then:
- search for a labour provider by location, name, or their unique reference number (URN)
- view further information such as contact details, authorised sectors and authorised persons
- print the page to keep a copy for your records
By phone - Call our helpline on 0345 602 5020 and select option 1 to confirm that a labour provider is licensed.
If you cannot find details for your labour provider, or have any questions, please contact us for confirmation that they do not have a licence.
The Active Check service
We recommend signing up for the ‘active check’ alerts service, in addition to checking the public register. This keeps you informed of any changes to your labour providers licence and proves that you have taken reasonable steps to use a licensed labour provider.
For more information on how to register for this service read the active check page in the Information for labour users section, or call the GLAA helpline.
