New policy on hiring agency staff

The University has launched a new policy to assist staff involved in hiring agency workers.

The Hiring Agency Workers policy was created in line with the Agency Workers Regulations, which came into force on 1 October.

Guidance and forms

This policy (along with guidance and forms) replaces previous guidance and briefing notes (published on 30 September 2011) and should be read by all staff involved in recruitment or staff facilities.

Such staff need to be aware of the legislation, which aims to protect agency workers by giving them new rights in relation to their working conditions and terms.

Please visit the HR website to read the new policy.

If you have any specific questions about the application of this new policy, contact your HR team or the resourcing team at University HR Services.
