Full day workshop on the provisions and practical ramifications of the Agency Worker Regulations 2010.

Dates/venues will be added to meet demand

The Agency Workers Regulations 2010 came into force on 1 October 2011 providing agency workers with a right to equal treatment after 12 weeks in a given job.

These Regulations have significant implications for the businesses of both labour providers and end-users of agency labour. The Association of Labour Providers, in conjunction with Brabners LLP, delivers a full day, detailed workshop on the provisions and practical ramifications of the Regulations.

You will be guided through the Regulations, work through practical issues arising from them and have plentiful opportunity to ask questions specific to your situation. Detailed course materials will be provided.

This workshop will help you to understand how the Regulations impact your business – both financially and operationally, and will allow you to evaluate the options to achieve compliance whilst mitigating the financial impact of implementation.
