AWR: Draft Guidance Announced

The government has today (1st April 2011) published the draft guidance, open for comment for a two week period. It is crucial that people recognise that the document is a work in progress and has not yet been finalised.

Final guidance is expected to be published early in May 2011, with plenty of time for consideration before the Regulations apply on 1st October 2011.

Agency workers will become first entitled to equal pay and working conditions on Christmas Day 2011, a nice gift from the government!

The guidance can be viewed by clicking this link. The Regulations themselves can be found here.
