Agency Workers Regulations

The Agency Workers Regulations came into effect in England, Scotland and Wales on the 1st October 2011. The Regulations give agency workers the right to claim the same basic working and employment conditions they would receive if they were engaged directly by the client to do the same job; this is limited to conditions that relate to pay and working time. Agency workers are also entitled are also entitled to access facilities and amenities that client provides to its own workers and to be advised by a client of vacancies which arise in the client’s business.

In the event that a agency worker is unable to satisfactorily resolve her/his complaint through the Complaints Policy & Procedure the Agency Workers Regulations state “that if a qualifying agency worker does not receive equal treatment (basic working and employment conditions), then s/he can pursue a claim in an Employment Tribunal against either the agency or the client (or both)”.
