Helping to Protect your Business & Brand

Get Started




nacsolutions was formed in October 2018 by Neil Court, the former Head of Compliance UK, at the GLAA (Gangmasters and Labour Abuse Authority). Neil began his career in the Met Office (Ministry of Defence) before moving on to the Department of Work & Pensions (DWP) becoming a fraud investigator and then a fraud manager for over 20 years. During that time he was part of the benefit fraud team known as AIT (Agricultural Investigation Team), dealing with suppliers and their gangmasters (labour providers) within the Lincolnshire area.

Temporary Labour Working Group

During the latter part of his DWP career in 2002 he was seconded to the TLWG (Temporary Labour Working Group) an industry consortium composed of government departments, retailers and other bodies including Trade Unions.

Ethical First

Leaving DWP in 2003 Neil worked as a consultant for Ethical First, a specialist business providing advice and guidance to retailers & suppliers of all aspects of temporary labour within supply chains.


Up until the end of December 2018 Neil successfully led a team of highly experienced and professional investigators as the Head of Compliance UK. His role was to undertake and manage all aspects of inspectorate activity for the organisation from applications for licences to complex compliance investigations. Using his detailed knowledge and experience of workers’ rights issues and legislation as part of the GLAA Standards, he has provided much needed advice and guidance both internally and externally to many individuals and stakeholders. A lot of work within his time at the GLAA was with most of the major retailers. He was influential in the production and subsequent revision of the Suppliers and Retail Protocol a document that was launched by the then Home Secretary, Theresa May in 2015.

In 2017 he worked with industry partners to produce and launch a short film on spotting the signs of Modern Slavery within supply chains. He was also involved with Nottinghamshire Councils, businesses, churches, charities and the Police, in raising awareness of modern slavery and a pledge to eradicate it in Nottinghamshire. Just before leaving the GLAA Neil was working with industry stakeholders on the production of a Good Practice Guide to spot and report Modern Slavery and to prevent risk at all levels within businesses. Neil is a dedicated and professional individual who cares passionately about the work he does at all times. He is very well respected throughout the industry he has worked in for many years and has many contacts of a similar professional nature in various businesses within the UK and abroad.
