Government Publishes Guidance on Agency Workers Regulations
The regulations will provide agency workers with the same basic working and employment conditions as if they had been hired directly, after working for the same hirer for 12 consecutive weeks. This covers:
- the duration of working time;
- night work;
- rest Periods;
- rest breaks; and
- annual leave
and will be judged against the terms and conditions that are ordinarily included in the hirer’s employment or other contracts for their own workers.
