Agency Workers Regulations


The Agency Workers Regulations (AWR) came into force in England, Scotland and Wales on 1 October 2011.

The Agency Workers (Northern Ireland) Regulations 2011 came into effect on 5th December 2011.

The Regulations are the most important legislation to affect the recruitment industry since the Conduct of Employment Agencies and Employment Businesses Regulations came into force in 2003.

The AWR provides agency workers with equal treatment akin to permanent employees with regard to pay and working conditions after 12 weeks of service in the same job. Agency workers are also entitled to access to on-site facilities that an end user Hirer provides to its own workers and they should also be advised by a Hirer of vacancies which arise in the Hirer’s business.

We would like to provide you with information on the Regulations and how Hudson can support our clients over the forthcoming months.

For more detailed information you can view the Guidance document, released by the Department for Business Innovation and Skills.
