Agency Worker RegulationsThe Agency Worker Regulations (AWR) came into force on 1st October 2011. The regulations originate from the European Temporary Workers Directive. After an agency worker has completed 12 weeks’ service in the same role, the agency worker will have the right to equal pay and other working conditions to that of the hirer’s (school’s) permanent staff. School House Recruitment Ltd is fully compliant with AWR legislation. Full guidance can be found at: Agency Workers Regulations Guidance.pdf
