Agency Works Regulations
What can we do for our clients next?
Questions & Discussion
The implementation of the Agency Workers Regulations (AWR) in October 2011 will require clients and Recruitment Agencies to work in partnership to ensure the regulations are adhered to.
The Regulations are the most important legislation to affect employers since the Conduct of Employment Agencies and Employment Businesses Regulations came into force in 2003.
As members of the REC we will keep our clients abreast of all legal implications and changes.
Presently we are evaluating the impact on our clients.
We will ensure our Planning Tools, Payroll system and Driver Passport System will ensure you are in compliance with the new legislation.
We will also comply with any in-house systems our clients use going forward to monitor the new legislation and indemnify our clients against any liability associated.

QIfa client pays double or treble time to its permanent employees for working a Bank Holiday after the 12 weeks, will they have to pay agency workers for the same rate?
Q Our client wishes to know if he pays his own driver’s meal allowance will he have to pay his agency the same after 12 weeks? (If the client classes this as expenses then, no the agency worker is not entitled).
Q If the drivers are employed by us and work at a site on a regular basis, who does the disciplinary in the event after 12 weeks?
Q Many clients are talking about going down the Swedish derogation route as their preferred route. Do you have an example contract for this?
