Time to Get Ready - The Temporary Agency Worker Regulations
By Suzanne Horne
On 1 October 2011 new legislation will dramatically impact the rights of temporary agency workers. It will mean an increase in the cost of using them, certain risks from day 1 of an assignment and liability transferring to the end user or hirer if they get it wrong. Given the increased reliance on 'temps' by organisations and companies operating in the UK coming out of the credit crisis plus the on-going scrutiny of permanent head count, you need to act now to understand the Regulations and what they mean for your business.
