Agency Workers Regulations

The Agency Workers Regulations come into force 1st October 2011 and will affect all employers who engage Agency Staff. 

The Regulations (AWR) provide that after a qualifying period of 12 weeks an agency worker will be entitled to the same pay and other basic working conditions as if the agency worker had been hired direct by the employer, including annual leave, overtime, night work and rest periods. 

Under the Regulations both the hirer and the Agency will be required to provide information to each other and the worker regarding the hirer’s terms and conditions and changes to pay entitlements after the 12 week qualifying period.
