Temporary Agency Worker Directive, are you ready?

August 5 2011

Is your organisation employing temporary agency workers? The TAWD 2011 Directive will become law in its current format and is designed to establish a framework for temporary workers to be treated on an equal basis to workers who are employed to occupy the same job. It applies to public and private undertakings engaged in economic activities whether or not for gain. Directive; Article 5 states that the basic working and employment conditions of temporary workers shall be at least those that would apply if they had been recruited directly by that enterprise to occupy the same job, including working time, overtime, breaks, rest periods, night work, public holidays and pay. Temporary Agency Workers must be given equal access to collective facilities and vocational training. Clauses in an agreement that prevent the end user from employing the agency worker after his/her assignment has ended are null and void. The Directive will become effective 5th December, IPC Consulting is working with a number of clients already and will conduct an audit of your organisation to determine the degree of preparedness free of charge.
