AGENCY AND TEMPORARY WORKERS TO HAVE SAME RIGHTS AS PERMANENT EMPLOYEES
The European Commission has put forward proposals that would require
and agency workers to receive the same terms and conditions as
in the end-user company – including pay, pensions, holiday and other benefits.
Currently in the UK, the primary employment relationship for agency staff is between
the agency and the staff they employ. These proposals would force
company�s who take
on agency workers to afford them the same pay and benefits
they give to their own staff.
A move which will obviously increase administrative costs
and remove the incentive for using agency workers in the first places.
