UK TEMPORARY WORKERS
The Conduct Regulations were introduced to provide agency workers with minimum standards they could expect from staffing solutions providers. These standards include requirements on payments, terms, charges, and the specific relationship between the worker and the agency.
Information on the Conduct Regulations can be obtained here.
As the Conduct Regulations are designed to principally apply to agency workers who are generally under the direction and control of the client, it is the view of NES Fircroft and many of its limited company contractors that where the contractor is genuinely in business on their own account, it is inconsistent for any assignment to be subject to the terms of the Conduct Regulations. However, workers are advised to take their own advice in relation to this and NES Fircroft confirm that an assignment contract is not conditional upon a worker agreeing to opt out of the Conduct Regulations. Regulation 32 covers the “Application of the Regulations to work-seekers which are incorporated” and Regulation 32 (9) provides for limited companies and those workers whose services they supply, to opt out of the Regulations.
To opt out of the conduct regulations, workers are to complete an NES Fircroft ‘Opt-Out Agreement’ defining the Limited Company and the worker conducting the services.
PAYE workers cannot opt out of the Conduct Regulations.
- An Opt-Out Agreement must be in place prior to any services being provided to the client; if this agreement is not made before this time, the opt-out could be deemed invalid.
- If you opt out, you can opt back in for subsequent assignments.
- If you opt-in, we will ask you if you want to exercise your right to opt-out prior to every contract extension or new assignment.
You should seek guidance on the Conduct Regulations and making your decision to opt out of the Conduct Regulations.
Completed Opt-Out Agreement forms must be returned to firstname.lastname@example.org
