Agency Workers Regulations draft guidance published

Since the Government announced on 19 October 2010 that it will not be amending the Agency Workers Regulations, BIS officials have been developing draft guidance in partnership with key stakeholders, representing the interests of agencies, hirers and agency workers. This is now available for comment until Friday April 15 at

BIS will consider your comments before finalising the guidance, due to be published on Business Link at the end of April or soon after, allowing the necessary time for all parties to prepare for the changes in advance of the regulations coming into force in October 2011.
