Fair’s Fair: Driving sustainable agency labour procurement

Due to the critical requirements of the Coronavirus pandemic, ALP will delay the launch of our Fair’s Fair programme, originally booked for Friday 27 March,  until our members, their clients and our wider stakeholder groups have more time and resource to engage fully with the programme.

Fair’s Fair is vital work;  supporting the commercially sustainable procurement of agency labour so that workers never pay the price of poor purchasing practice.  But ALP recognises that in these extraordinary times, we must be focused on supporting our members and the wider community in which we work, to ensure that the nation is fed, and supplied with essentials.

Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience; our revised launch date for Fair’s Fair is 5th June and anyone already booked for this Friday will be automatically transferred to the later date.  We would like to reassure you that ALP is very much open for business and we encourage all members to make full use of the Coronavirus resources on our website and engage with us via our email, telephone or Linked In page.

“Fair’s Fair” is an awareness and education programme to support the commercially sustainable procurement of agency labour so that workers never pay the price of poor purchasing practice.


  • Fair for workers – Workers receive the pay and rights to which they are legally and contractually entitled; can work safely and are treated fairly in accordance with established ethical labour standards.
  • Fair for labour providers – Charge rates are sufficient to meet statutory and contractual requirements and provide a sustainable margin.
  • Fair for labour users – Ethical labour standards for agency workers are adhered to and reputation is protected.

Help ensure that the provision, use and management of labour in the UK is recognised as a sustainable model of good practice. Read the Fair’s Fair pre-launch brief here and book onto the free webinars below to learn more.
