New rights for temps- the Agency Worker Regulations 2010

1st October 2011 sees the introduction of these new regulations that basically give temporary workers that are sent to work in your office by an agency the same rights as your permanent staff. So for instance, if your permanent staff have access to a canteen or a gym, the temporary worker will have the same entitlement. The law is very intricate and you will need to consult an employment lawyer if this applies to you. However, in the meantime, examine your staff list and establish who is permanent and who is temporary to see if you need to adapt/expand your facilities and indeed consult a lawyer!
