AWR Guidelines - August 2011 Posted on 11 Aug 2011

Openspaces have done the groundwork for you.

We have taken the time to wade through all the advice from REC, BIS and PCG in order to compile this quick guide for our clients and contractors to understand how AWR will affect them. In brief, we believe that the answer is, the high level professionals that contract with us will not fall into the category of "temporary agency worker" and therefore the AWR does not apply. Having said that every client, contractor and assignment is different so please take the time to read the guidelines and if in doubt take independent advice.

View the guidelines here AWRGuidelines

Latest on AWR - June 2011 Posted on 15 Apr 2011

The Agency Workers Regulations (AWR) and implementation of the Agency Workers Directive is the most significant legislation ever to hit the UK’s private recruitment industry.

The government guidelines published on 6th May 2011 give an example of which temporary worker would be out of the scope of AWR;

An individual has set up his own limited company through which he provides IT services. He is engaged by a TWA and supplied to work on a specific project with an anticipated duration of 12 months. The individual has no fixed working pattern and can determine how and when he performs the services; he can also send a substitute to perform the services at any time or payment is made on specific deliverable or on a fixed price and not simply on an hour, daily or weekly rate. However, he is subject to the hirer’s reasonable and lawful instructions. Given the absence of personal service and mutuality of obligation, the company is a client or customer of the individual, therefore the individual is out of scope. This must be a true reflection of the reality of the relationships between the parties involved and not simply a reflection of the contractual term

Openspaces are closely monitoring developments to make sure that we are working within the latest legislation for AWR and IR35.
