Your information counts - Please provide information about any labour provider who is exploiting the welfare and rights of workers.
As a regulator with enforcement capabilities we investigate worker exploitation across the UK, disrupting criminal activity and supporting workers who have been abused.
We rely on your information to help stop worker exploitation, so please let us know about any form of labour abuse or mistreatment of workers, labour providers operating without a licence or a business using an unlicensed gangmaster.
We can help if you need to report issues within the GLAA regulated sectors or you have concerns about labour abuse or modern slavery. You can find out more about the indicators of modern slavery on our Spotting the signs page. Before submitting a report please check if the GLAA is the right enforcement body for you.
Please get in touch if you are:
- working excessively long hours
- receiving little or no pay
- paying work finding fees
- unable to move jobs freely
- forced to work through fear, violence or coercion
- having your movements controlled
- not in possession of your own passport
