New Rules for Agency Workers

New rules come into force from October 2011 to align the treatment of agency workers with employees. This will mean that if you hire an agency worker, after a 12 week qualifying period agency workers will be entitled to the same pay and basic working conditions (such as annual leave and overtime) as employees.

These new rules could be avoided through the use of personal service companies and we are able to offer you all the advice and support needed to put suitable arrangements in place.
