Labour Providers Against Modern Slavery

Labour providers aim to deliver a quality service to clients by supplying temporary workers to their workforce. Many of these workers can come from different countries to fulfil roles that a client is struggling to have fulfilled by other means. They may be working on short term visas, or need to have a flexible schedule, the personal set-up of temporary working fits with many people’s lifestyles and Labour Providers are working to make this more accessible. Labour Providers follow strict regulations and work closely with clients to establish policies that ensure the safety and welfare of those signing up to join a Labour Provider.

This is because of the risk of modern slavery in the industry of temporary workers. Labour Providers ensure their applicants are working for a reputable company, receiving full benefits and a fair wage in exchange for their services to the client. Often the Labour Provider will provide additional aid in finding further work to existing applicants, and provide help with seeking training, translator services or sorting out travel arrangements and working visas.

Stronger Together is an association providing specialist advice and resources to Labour Providers that is taking proactive measures to address modern slavery and the risks of hidden labour exploitation in their business and other labour supply chain businesses. They are a multi-stakeholder business-led initiative aiming to reduce modern slavery, focused primarily on forced labour and labour trafficking. The exploitation of workers is a miserable existence, and these people have the same rights as anyone else, deserving of a fair and stable income without threat. Stronger Together aims to provide guidance, training, resources, and networking for employers to work together on the reduction of exploitation.
