Law & HR, done differently.

Gig workers and the Recruitment Sector

Agency Workers Regulations 2010, “Gig” workers and surrounding issues. Does your business engage agency workers? If so you need to be aware of the Agency Workers Regulations 2010 which are in place to ensure that agency workers are not treated less favourably than their full-time counterparts, who do the same work.

Join the hundreds of businesses that trust Peach for their unrivalled legal support.

Providing our clients with flexible specialist employment law expertise in Manchester and beyond.

This sector is a regulatory minefield that is constantly changing and yet it is vital for the thriving recruitment business to ensure that margins are not eroded entirely through legislation and red tape.

Your business must ensure that temporary workers, after an initial 12-week period are afforded the same basic rights as permanent workers. After a 12-week period in the role, the worker will qualify for the same rights as someone employed directly, this will include a right to equal pay, (the same as a permanent worker), automatic pension enrolment and paid annual leave.

Further, if you engage “consultants” or “associates” or “sub-contractors”, is your contract with them drafted correctly? Do you believe that they are not employees and therefore have no rights? Are you sure they could not be categorised as workers?

Are you staying up to date with the rules affecting:
• Agency Worker Regulations 2010
