Agency Workers – New Regulations come into force from 1 October 2011Wednesday, January 27th, 2010
In a newsletter article in October 2009, we reviewed the Government’s final consultation document on the implementation of the European Directive on Conditions for Temporary Workers. The final Agency Workers Regulations 2010 were laid before Parliament on 21 January and come into force on 1 October 2011, leaving over a year for agencies and hirers of agency workers to prepare for the changes.
In a coming newsletter we will update the article that appeared last October and provide some guidance on the practical implications of the Regulations for agencies and employers.
For readers who are interested in exploring the new provisions in detail immediately, the Explanatory Memorandum is a useful source of information.
