The following Employment guidance note provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:
FORTHCOMING CHANGE: The Agency Workers (Amendment) Regulations 2019, SI 2019/724 come into force on 6 April 2020. They revoke regulations 10–11 of the Agency Workers Regulations 2010 (the ‘Swedish derogation’) which allow agency workers to opt out of equal pay entitlements which become available after 12 weeks in the same role with the same hirer, subject to certain conditions including pay between individual assignments in the UK. These regulations also provide agency workers with the right not to be unfairly dismissed or subjected to a detriment for a reason relating to the Agency Worker Regulations 2010. The Conduct of Employment Agencies and Employment Businesses (Amendment) Regulations 2019, SI 2019/725 also come into force on 6 April 2020. They will amend the Conduct of Employment Agencies and Employment Businesses Regulations 2003 to require employment businesses to give a key information document to an individual seeking work through the business. The document will have to be given before the business reaches an agreement on terms with that individual. For more information, see: LNB News 19/12/2018 99 and LNB News 29/01/2019 87.
