Agency Workers Regulations

The Agency Workers Regulation came into force on 1 October 2011. This gave Agency Workers entitlements to the same basic employment and working conditions as if they would have been recruited directly.

Agency workers are used as a valuable resource for employers to fill the gaps temporarily without having to go through a cumbersome recruitment process.

An agency worker is someone who provides work or services to an organisation, but is contracted via an agency rather than the organisation itself.

The legislation will give temporary agency workers the same basic rights, after 12 weeks in the same assignment, as those on permanent contracts of employment in a comparable role.

Equal treatment after the initial qualifying period will cover pay and working conditions, including overtime, breaks, rest periods and public holidays.  For further information contact:- http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/Nl1/Newsroom/DG_199272
