'Business as usual' for exploitation investigators
21st May 2020
Investigators from our North East team proved it’s business as usual at the GLAA after investigating worker exploitation at a business in West Yorkshire.
Concerns had been raised over their living conditions and their welfare, so our investigating officers Chris Dunleavy, Mick Coles, and Ivana Glassner (pictured left to right) donned their PPE to work proactively with West Yorkshire Police to carry out a joint visit at the address.
Enquiries at the location found no workers were present and did not identify people living in concerning conditions.
The GLAA will not hesitate to use its full range of powers to ensure businesses remain compliant and those criminals exploiting workers are pursued and brought to justice.
Despite the lockdown, we continue to conduct investigations and inspections to ensure workers are protected.
