People Management;11/11/2010, p34
The article analyzes the possible amendment to the Agency Worker Regulations 2010 prior its implementation on October 1, 2011. It indicates that agency workers will receive the same basic pay and conditions as employees after 12 weeks in an assignment, while sick pay, redundancy and bonuses are excluded. Employers are expected to face issues with the implementation of the new policies, such as staffing needs and costing ways to meet them, negotiating improved terms with agencies, and reviewing access to childcare and canteen facilities.
