From 1st October 2011 the Agency Workers Regulations (AWR) that Parliament passed into law last year, will come into force.
These regulations aim to give agency and temporary workers the same fair treatment, pay, holidays and working rights that apply to permanent employees.
However a recent industry report indicates that 37% of firms are completely unfamiliar with this important piece of legislation.
To help firms come to terms with the impact of this new legislation, we here at The Agency, have teamed up with local specialists, Red Elephants HR to deliver a free breakfast briefing for employers wanting to know more about the regulations and how they will impact upon their businesses.
Kim Barnes-Evans, Managing Director of The Agency says,
These regulations will affect all organisations that currently use or intend to use, temporary and agency workers. New legislation like this can be very confusing for many employers, so with this workshop we are aiming to clarify the rights that employers will have and what rights they need to give their temporary workers.
This free workshop will be held at the TouchBase meeting facility (Junc 26, M62) in Cleckheaton on Wednesday 21st September 2011 starting with a light breakfast at 8am and concluding at 11am.
For more information please go to our dedicated events web page which also includes directions to the seminar venue.

Please note we are limited to 30 places only.
