Product description

Why should you buy Employment Agencies, Recruitment Agencies and Agency Workers

This book approaches the subject from both agency regulations and employment law. The first part of the book provides practical guidance on the statutory regulation of employment agencies and recruitment agencies under the Employment Agencies Act 1973 and the Gangmasters (Licensing) Act 2004 together with their ancillary Regulations. It also examines the recent reforms introduced in the Immigration Act 2016 which are likely to have a profound effect upon the regulation of employment agencies and recruitment agencies operating in the labour market.

The second part of the book discusses the various strands of employment law that impact recruiting and employing agency workers. Specifically chapters cover the rights of agency workers, ranging from the common law development of the law in relation to the employment status of agency workers through to the statutory rights and protections provided by the Agency Worker Regulations 2010. There is also coverage on discrete issues such as potential liability for the acts of agency workers and the taxation of agency workers.

Essential practical guidance for employment solicitors and barristers advising companies and agencies, and in-house compliance officers advising on employment regulatory matters.
