Agency Worker Regulations AWR calculation
In line, automatic checking and summary reports for the total accrued AWR weeks for every hirer, employee & job.
The Agency Worker Regulations (AWR) began on the 1st October 2011 and cover over 50 pages. If we are to take all clauses of the act into consideration, the complete calculation can extend to over three years of employment. In the simplest of cases an agency worker who works at least once a week for a period of 12 weeks will automatically acquire the same rights as a member of full time staff. More specifically the clauses allow that between every or any pair of weeks, an agency worker can take a break for up to 6 weeks without breaking the accumulation of the 12 week period. The 12 weeks can therefore be accumulated over a period of a year or even longer. There are several other situations where the 12 week build up can be paused or keep running without the worker being there.
All these are accounted for through the use of the in-house AWR calculator, which uses simple graphics (see below) to show how close an employee is to gaining the whole 12 week period.
AWR features include:
- Automatic handling of re-employed substantive workers
- 3rd party Agency workers
- Notification of impending parity
- Reports for clients
- Correct legal entity allocation
- Fully flexible job description handling
