Whilst the implementation for the Agency Worker’s Directive (AWD) has been delayed until October 2011, recruiters are being urged to start preparing for this new legislation now.
The implementation of the AWD means the country’s 1.4 million temporary will be handed the same employment rights (which, amongst other things, relates to pay and holiday time) as permanent staff after 12 week’s of employment. Furthermore, these individuals will be given the right to bring a claim to an employment tribunal, and this power could be handed to temporary staff as early as Spring next year.
