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) came into force on the 1st October 2011, and the act on the whole is over 50 pages long. In extreme cases, where all clauses of the act are to be considered, the calculation may extend over 3 years. In its simplest terms, an agency worker who works any day in a week for a period of 12 weeks will automatically acquire the same rights as a full time employee. Although it isn't quite that straightforward as between every or any pair of weeks, a worker can be absent for up to six weeks, meaning that in some cases, it can take up to a year for a worker to gain full time employee rights. There are also additional periods where the 12 week accumulation process can be paused or keep running without the worker being physically present. 

All these can be accounted for through the use of the internal AWR calculator in AVA and are displayed during the booking process.
