Agency Workers’ Regulations

With  the introduction of the Agency Workers’ Regulations, which come into force on 1 October 2011, HR have produced an Engaging Agency Workers – Guidance for Managers document to ensure that the responsibilities and implications for College are fully understood.  The new legislation provides agency workers with the same basic employment rights  and working conditions as if they had been recruited directly by College, if and when they complete a qualifying period of 12 weeks.  It also gives them access to College facilities and internal job vacancies from day 1.
