Briefing

The Agency Worker Regulations 2010

Posted by : Michal Chudy | Date posted : 07/02/2012

The Agency Worker Regulations 2010 (the Regulations) came into force on 1 October 2011.  The Regulations aim to ensure that agency workers hired through temporary work agencies receive the same basic working and employment conditions as if they had been hired directly by the hiring organisation (the Hirer).  More specifically, the Regulations provide a combination of what I refer to below as "day one rights" and "12-week rights".
