The article presents the views of the British Chartered Institute of Personnel & Development (CIPD) on the new rights for agency workers agreed by the government. The Trades Union Congress (TUC) and the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) struck a deal with the government that will entitle agency workers to the same treatment as their permanent counterparts after 12 weeks. The route from temporary to permanent work will be damaged by the inappropriate qualifying period, said Ben Willmott, CIPD adviser.
