Agency worker regulations 1st Oct 2011
In line, automatic checking and summary reports for the total accrued AWR weeks for every hirer, employee & job.
The Agency worker regulations which came into force on 1st Oct 2011 spans some 50 pages. The fully correct calculation may ultimately extend over 3 years of employment when all clauses of the act are taken into account. In a straight forward case an Agency worker who works any day in a week for 12 weeks consecutively will accrue the rights that they will enjoy parity of pay and conditions under law with the minimum equivalent substantive full time employee. The clauses mean that between every and any pair of weeks, any agency worker may be absent for up to six weeks without interrupting the accumulation process of the total 12 weeks. Put another way, twelve weeks can be accumulated over in excess of a year. On top of this, there are additional periods which cause the accumulation process to be pause 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.

- Automatic handing of reemployed substantive workers
