Agency Workers Regulations 2010

This document describes what rights agency workers are entitled to when working at the University.  It also explains the responsibilities of hiring managers.

  • Agency workers must be given the same access to facilities and amenities as university staff.
  • Once an agency worker has 12 weeks service at the University, they are entitled to the same basic terms and conditions as other university staff, in such areas as pay and holidays.
  • Before hiring an agency worker, managers should give careful consideration to whether the use of an agency worker is necessary.
  • Responsibility for ensuring compliance with the regulations lies with managers for the first 12 weeks, after which it lies with the agency.
