Agency Worker Regulations 2011

Managing the Business/Agency Worker Relationship

In October 2011, the Agency Worker Directive and Agency Worker Regulations came into effect in the UK. These laws deal with the treatment of temporary agency workers and allow companies to hire agency workers for a wider range of jobs than was previously allowed.

Employment Law Specialists Protecting UK Businesses

Many companies, especially larger entities, have a need for temporary workers from time to time. The new laws impose duties on these employers that did not exist previously. Our London Agency Worker Regulations' solicitors frequently advise recruitment consultants, hiring managers and other human resources staff on the proper way to deal with the hiring of agency workers.

It is important for companies to be proactive in their efforts to comply with the Agency Worker Regulations. The Regulations and the Directive contain subtle nuances and details that are easy to miss. Our primary role as solicitors for businesses is to make sure our clients deal with agency workers correctly at the beginning, so that the risk of potential complications is minimised.

We advise that you do not hire agency workers without getting qualified legal advice beforehand. At Rollingsons, we are prepared to educate you on your obligations to provide equal treatment to agency workers, including in the areas of pay and working time.
