Guidance Notes for Employers: The Agency Workers Regulations 2010
These Guidance Notes for Employers: The Agency Workers Regulations will be
of use to businesses which hire temporary staff, and agencies which supply
temporary staff, to make them aware of the changes to the rights of agency
workers. Since 1 October 2011, once agency workers have completed a 12 week
qualifying period, they have the right to the same terms and conditions as
if they had been recruited directly by the hirer.
These Guidance Notes have been refined using the Department for Business
Innovation & Skills Guidance, and the Agency Workers Regulations 2010
to provide the reader with the important points to note, including the
terms and conditions that are included in the right to equal treatment; how
the 12 week qualifying period is calculated; and liability issues when
hirers and temporary works agencies do not comply with the Regulations.
These Guidance Notes for Employers: The Agency Workers Regulations are in
open format. Either enter the requisite details in the highlighted fields
or adjust the wording to suit your purposes.
