AGENCY WORKER REGULATIONS

The Agency Worker Regulations 2010 (AWR) became law in the UK on 1st October 2011. This is an important new piece of legislation and we advise that all temporary agency workers spend some time and get to grips with the new regulations. Whilst the various rules surrounding AWR are complex the overall aim is simple; to ensure that you as a temporary agency worker are treated equally in terms of basic working and employment conditions.

The regulations refer to three separate parties, you as the agency worker, us as the temporary work agency and our clients as the hirers. The hirer is the end user who requests agency workers through us, the employment agency. The hirer can be an individual person, company, partnership, sole trader or public body and is responsible for supervising and directing you while you perform your shift.

For further questions, please refer to the ‘Agency Worker Regulations (2010)’.
