Agency Bill Signed into Law

The Protection of Employees (Temporary Agency Work) Act, 2012 was signed into law on 16th May 2012. The Act requires hiring employers to treat temporary agency workers no less favourably in relation to basic working and employment conditions than if they had been hired directly by the hiring company. The term “basic working and employment conditions” is defined in the Act and includes pay, annual leave working time and rest periods. The Act also provides that temporary agency workers should be given access to collective facilities and should be given details of permanent vacancies by the hiring employer.

If you require further information, please contact Michelle O’Riordan, Solicitor, who leads our Employment and Pensions Unit.
