Agency Workers Regulations Seminar

Which WayThe 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?


Whether you have a regular large temporary 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 implementation.


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.


Thursday 9th June: 10.00am – 12.30pm, Registration: 9.30am
Cumberwell Park Golf Club, Bradford-on-Avon
Cost: £49.00 per person (excl VAT)*
