Agency Worker Regulations (AWR) Calculation
In line, automatic checking and summary reports for the total accrued AWR weeks for every hirer, employee & job.
The Agency Worker Regulations came into effect on 1st October 2011 and are more than 50 pages long. The simplest use of the regulations can be applied to an Agency worker who works any day in a week for a period of 12 weeks. This can be extended in some cases for up to 3 years when all clauses of the act are taken into consideration. In general if a worker works the 12 consecutive weeks, they will acquire the same rights as full time employed staff. The regulations allow for a worker to be absent for up to 6 weeks between any or all weeks and still accumulate the 12 weeks in the long run. Another way of looking at it is that the 12 weeks can therefore be accumulated over a year or longer. On top of this, there are other scenarios which cause the accumulation process to be paused or keep running without the worker being physically present.
All these are accounted for automatically by the internal AWR calculator and displayed in line during the booking process in a very user friendly way. Below is a simple example:
