New UK task force protects the welfare of seasonal workers

A new task force has been established to ensure the responsible recruitment and employment of migrant workers under the UK seasonal workers scheme. The group is made up of trade bodies, retailers, growers, recruiters, and non-profit organizations. It aims to work with the UK government to improve practices and safeguard workers' rights.

The initiative follows concerns raised in previous seasons about exploitation risks faced by some migrant workers on seasonal worker visas, leading to the loss of a seasonal worker scheme operator's license. The task force will focus on improving access to information and communication, monitoring and improving practices during recruitment and on farms, and addressing recruitment fees and overall earnings.
