The University of Derby has not been contracted by the Home Office to assess the remit of the Gangmasters Licensing Authority.

The University is collaborating with the Gangmaster Licensing Authority to develop an academy which will offer those within the labour supply chain and others training on how to spot the signs of worker exploitation. This will

enable them to enhance their checks on workers’ treatment and welfare and identify hidden forms of exploitation. The Gangmasters Licensing Authority have already piloted aspects of this training with the supermarket Sainsbury’s
