Recruitment and Temporary Work Agencies

We have acquired a significant number of clients in the recruitment sector over recent years and, as a result, have developed an expertise in assisting and advising both temporary work agencies and hirers of agency workers.

The Agency Workers Regulations 2010 changed the law in this area.  After 12 weeks, agency workers now have the right to the same working / employment conditions (in respect of hours of work and pay) they would be entitled to if they were engaged by the end-user client to do the same job.  

We have been working with our clients closely since 1 October 2011 (when the Regulations came into force) to help those responsible understand the implications and responsibilities involved and how they are affected.  For example, we have worked with a large local temporary work agency to implement contracts which utilise an exception to the Regulations known as the “Swedish Derogation”.  The contracts are referred to as “Pay Between Assignment” contracts, or “PBA” contracts.

We are happy to help any businesses within scope of the Regulations, whether to offer assistance and training or to provide more specific advice.  We are also able to provide in-house talks and seminars on the Regulations, if required.
