Legal Support for Temporary Agency Staff & Employers

Navigating the world of temporary and agency work can be complex, both for agency staff and for the companies that hire them. At Wildings Solicitors, our dedicated employment law team understands the unique challenges on both sides and is here to provide expert legal guidance and support.

Agency Staff: Know Your Rights, Protect Your Interests

The Agency Workers Regulations 2010 (AWR 2010) grant agency staff certain fundamental rights, even from day one:

  • Equal treatment: You deserve access to the same facilities and amenities as comparable permanent employees.
  • Vacancy awareness: Your agency must inform you of relevant job openings at the hirer’s company, giving you a fair chance at permanent employment.
  • Equal pay & conditions: After 12 weeks of continuous service, you are entitled to the same basic pay, working hours, rest breaks, and annual leave as directly hired staff.


Unfortunately, statistics show that awareness of these rights is often low, and unfair treatment of agency staff persists.
Wildings Solicitors can empower you to:

  • Understand your full rights and entitlements under the AWR 2010.
  • Seek redress if you encounter discrimination, unequal pay, or unfair working conditions.
  • Negotiate favorable terms and conditions with your agency.
  • Resolve disputes with your agency or the hirer company effectively.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

For employers

You must ensure agency workers receive the same basic working and employment conditions as your directly hired staff after 12 weeks of continuous service. This includes pay, working hours, rest breaks, annual leave, and access to collective facilities. Additionally, you must inform them of relevant job openings and treat them no less favourably than permanent employees in terms of access to facilities and amenities.

Develop clear and consistent policies for managing agency staff, ensuring compliance with the AWR 2010. Document pay rates, contracts, and working conditions transparently. Regularly review your practices and seek legal advice if unsure about any aspect of the regulations.

Breaches can lead to financial penalties and potential claims from agency workers. Addressing any concerns promptly and proactively seeking legal guidance can help mitigate risks and resolve issues effectively.

We offer tailored legal advice and training programs to help you understand and implement the AWR 2010. We can review your policies, contracts, and procedures, and provide ongoing support to navigate any challenges related to agency work.

For employees

You have the right to equal treatment in terms of access to facilities and amenities, and you must be informed of relevant job openings within the hiring company. After 12 weeks of continuous service, you are entitled to the same basic pay, working hours, rest breaks, and annual leave as permanent employees.

Keep a record of any instances of unfair treatment, such as unequal pay or denied benefits. Contact your agency and express your concerns. If the issue persists, seek legal advice from Wildings Solicitors. We can guide you through your options, including negotiating with your agency or pursuing legal action if necessary.

Familiarize yourself with your rights under the AWR 2010 and keep track of your service duration. If you reach the 12-week qualifying period, actively inquire about your entitlements and raise any concerns with your agency and the hirer company.

We offer free consultations to assess your situation and advise you on your legal options. We can represent you in negotiations with your agency or the hirer company, and fight for your rightful benefits and fair treatment.
