Agency worker regulations AWR 1st Oct 2011

In line, automatic checking and summary reports for the total accrued AWR weeks for every hirer, employee & job.

The AWR or Agency worker regulations became active on 1st Oct 2011. The AWR act span is over 50 pages. If all its clauses are taken into account, any totally compliant calculation may extend to over 3 years of hiring.  In the simplest case an Agency worker working any one day a week for 12 weeks will meet the needs of the act. They will then enjoy the rights to pay and conditions equivalent to a substantive full time employee. One of the clauses mean that between any pair of applicable weeks, the worker may be absent for up to almost six weeks. This will not break the course of accumulation. Put another way, twelve weeks can be accumulated over a period in excess of a year. On top of this, there are additional times which cause the accrual to be paused or even keep running without the worker being physically present.

All these clauses are accounted for automatically by the internal AWR calculator and simply displayed in line during the booking process.
