AWR Employer Seminar
Are you ready?
The Agency Workers Regulations, designed to provide equal
treatment for agency workers, is coming into affect on the
1st October 2011.
Is your business ready? What affect could it
have on your business? Will there be an extra cost burden?

workforce, or use temporary staff to overcome an
increased workload on an ad hoc basis, these Regulations apply
as much to the hiring company, as they do to the
supplying agency. It is therefore imperative that users of
agency staff understand and are fully prepared for the
Now is the time to asses the impact
and implement plans and processes to manage the
administrative changes that the Regulations require.
This seminar focuses on demystifying the new regulations,
will help you plan your own response to the changes, talk to
other businesses facing similar uncertainties and seek advice
from your local recruitment partner.
