The GLA are a non-departmental public body that was set up to protect workers from exploitation. The GLA specifically regulates businesses (and agencies) supplying into the fresh produce supply chain and horticulture industry ensuring that certain standards required by law are adhered to.
Pure Staff strongly urge you to ensure that the agencies and employment businesses you chose to work with are not only registered with the GLA but they fully operate in line with GLA standards.
As you are undoubtedly aware, if you use agency workers within any of the following sectors your agency must be a registered GLA member:
• Shellfish gathering
• Food and drink processing and packaging
Pure Staff are registered members with the GLA. Our membership enables us to legally supply temporary workers into the aforementioned sectors. In line with GLA stipulation towards agency workers, Pure Staff ensure that all workers who fall under GLA regulations are paid using traditional PAYE payroll (paid and employed by Pure Staff) with holiday pay being paid to the worker on an accrual basis.
If you are regulated under the GLA and use temporary workers or wish to do so, then contact us today where you can be sure to not only get the very best in service but be fully protected with the peace of mind that you are in safe compliant hands.
