UK recruitment agency owners, directors
and consultant can learn how to make AWR less stressful and enter to win VIP
tickets to the England V India cricket match taking place at the Kia Oval
next month, thanks to a new competition announced by the FPS umbrella
FPS has published a free white paper which explains new UK employment law, the Agency Workers Regulations (AWR), being introduced later this year. Recruitment professionals can download the white paper here to be entered into a draw for VIP tickets to the cricket match taking place in August.
“AWR legislation will change the way agency workers are recruited and employed in the UK, and at FPS we want to help people to choose the right direction for them,” says Simon Last-Sutton, managing director, FPS Group. “This white paper lays out the changes and the options for agency workers, recruiters and employers to remain compliant.”
On 1 October, AWR comes into force. It will directly impact all agencies and umbrella companies. The new legislation will entitle agency workers to the same basic employment and working conditions in relation to pay, working time and annual leave as if they were recruited directly by the hiring company once they have completed a qualifying period of 12 weeks in the same job.
The FPS umbrella company’s free whitepaper covers:
* What is AWR?
* The impact of AWR on agencies and hirers
* Options and solutions for agency workers
The draw will take place on 1st August 2011 and will be announced on the FPS Group website. There will be the opportunity to win a different VIP experience every month to the end of September ranging from dinner for two at the Ritz followed by tickets to see the “Wizard of Oz” and VIP tickets to see Rihanna at the O2 in London.
FPS has built a reputation over 16 years as one of the UK’s most trusted and reputable umbrella company. To date, the company has processed more than 2.5 million invoices for more than 65,000 agency workers.
