Closed 9 May 2018

Opened 7 Feb 2018


This consultation seeks views on recommendations made in the Review of Modern Working Practices published on 11/7/2017. Specifically, it looks at how to increase transparency of contractual arrangements for agency workers, how Umbrella Companies or intermediaries could be brought within the scope of the Employment Agency Standards Inspectorate (EAS), and gather evidence on the level of abuse of the ‘Swedish Derogation’ with consideration of whether EAS’ remit should be extended to cover the enforcement of the Agency Workers Regulations.
