The new Agency Worker Regulations came in to force on 1 October 2011.

If your organisation hires temporary or casual staff through an agency, to cover busy periods, or as an additional resource on a more frequent basis then you need to know about the changes to the law.

New regulations give agency workers the entitlement to the same treatment as other employees with respect to basic employment and working conditions, after they complete a qualifying period of 12 weeks in a particular job.

These conditions include the same basic hourly pay rate, overtime, shift allowances, unsocial hours’ premiums, payments for difficult or dangerous duties, lunch vouchers, bonuses for the quality and quantity of work, rest breaks and annual leave allowance.

Employment Tribunals can impose fines on employers found to have breached the new laws or not followed the detail of the new regulations.

Acas has issued guidance on the Agency Worker Regulations and what the changes will mean for employers. Please visit the Acas website for more information.
