Permanent Equivalent Information
To make sure we are complying with AWR legislation* we need to know if there is a permanent employee within your company doing broadly the same role as your new contractor. If there isn't, you only need to complete Section 1 and tick option (A).
If there is a permanent equivalent, we need to know their salary and annual leave entitlement. Please complete Section 1 and 2.
Thank you for your assistance with this.
*What is AWR?
The Agency Workers Regulations 2010 is UK based legislation derived from an EU Directive. The Regulations define the new employment status of "agency worker", and provide agency workers with a set of employment rights.
The aim of the legislation is to ensure that temporary workers working through recruitment firms are provided with employment rights similar to those they would have received if they had been working permanently for the end user client. The main right provided by the Regulations is the provision of basic working and employment conditions equal to those enjoyed by permanent staff.
