The final guidance has been published to support the Agency Workers Regulations (AWR), which come into force on 1 October 2011.

The guidance demands agency workers be given the right to the same basic employment and working conditions, such as pay and holidays, as permanent staff and says they should be entitled to use collective facilities, including canteens and childcare facilities, from the first day of their appointment.

The regulations specifically affect individuals employed for more than 12 weeks, so will be relevant to businesses that bolster staff over busier summer months or for long roadshows.
