The Agency workers regulations give agency workers the entitlement to the same or no less favourable treatment as comparable employees with respect to basic employment and working conditions, if and when they complete a qualifying period of 12 weeks in a particular job.
The regulations cover agency workers supplied by a temporary work agency to a hirer. This includes most agency workers that people refer to as ‘temps’. The regulations also cover agency workers supplied via intermediaries. To establish the rights in these regulations, the agency worker needs to be able to identify a comparator.
The regulations don’t cover the genuinely self-employed, individuals working through their own limited liability company, or individuals working on managed service contracts
