The new EU Regulations regarding agency workers’ rights will have a great impact on business performance; therefore it’s important to understand this new law.
From October 2011 agency workers will gain much more rights than ever before.
After 12 weeks of working on an assignment agency workers will be entitled to the same benefits as permanent staff. This will include:
- basic hourly pay rate
- working conditions
- overtime and shift allowances
- unsocial hours premiums
- lunch vouchers
- break times
- annual leave allowances
- bonuses related to the quality and quantity of work done
Benefits gained from the first day of a temporary employment:
- access to information regarding internal vacancies
- access to crèche, childcare, canteen and transport facilities
These regulations will apply to all temporary agency workers whether they are on a contract of employment or contract for services.
