Labour Only Agreements
There is no way that the Security Industry can insist on recognition as a profession and continue to look the other way...….
The SIA’s guidelines within the Approved Contractor Scheme (ACS) excludes any checks on labour only agreements. A large number of Security Companies have been exploiting this fact to avoid scrutiny on vetting and to avoid tax.
This process transfers financial risks to customers, risk of harm to the general public and exploits those at the sharp end of our industry.
This risks surrounding labour provider abuse is only now being discussed but we have been investigating this for two years & what we’ve found is not pleasant reading.
