With the Conservatives warning against possible cost to the economy rising to some £40bn over a 10 year period and widespread concern of government overkill (“gold plating”), the Agency Workers Directive has already proved to be the most controversial piece of proposed legislation affecting the recruitment supply industry thus far.
Now that the government’s actual plans have been published, how will the new laws affect you? More importantly what do your clients think? Are limited company contractors inside or outside the scope? Is employment of your workers the answer, or is the supply agency model facing a radical setback? Various areas of the government’s plans remain controversial, require clarification, and a response from the industry is sought.
Addressing the issues, speakers include:
Adrian Marlowe, our MD and Chair of ARC (the Association of Recruitment Consultancies)
Karen Wilshaw – Assistant Director for Atypical Work, Employment Relations Directorate, Department for Business Innovation and Skills (BIS, formerly BERR/DTI).
Why attend? To put yourselves in a position so that you can understand the impact, adjust your plans going forward, and respond confidently to your clients concerns. And importantly ask your questions and have your say.
Who should attend? Directors and senior managers responsible for strategy and forward planning. Suitable for recruitment companies, hirers and service providers.
BOOK YOUR PLACE NOW – call 01273 236236.
