Using a labour provider provides a time saving, cost effective solution. These resources help you to ensure good practice when using labour providers.

The flexibility of temporary agency working allows businesses to react quickly to additional labour requirements, production variations and seasonal fluctuations, cover absences and provide a valuable source of experienced permanent employees.

As a labour user, it is your responsibility to carry out the necessary due diligence to be confident that your labour provider is operating legally, fairly and ethically.

You should understand where your workers come from, their journey, how they’re being paid and the legitimacy and standard of the supply arrangements.
