From the 6 April 2020, all employment businesses are to provide agency work-seekers with a key facts statement, before agreeing the terms by which the work-seeker will undertake work.
The document must include information about:
Whether the work-seeker will be engaged under a contract of service, an apprenticeship or a contract for services.
The identity of the employment business.
The minimum expected rate of pay.
How they will be paid and by whom (for example, by an intermediary or umbrella company).
Any non-monetary benefits to which the work-seeker will be entitled.
The nature and amount of any deductions, costs or fees that will be taken, specifying which of these are required by law.
Details of any entitlement to annual leave and to payment in respect of such leave.
An illustrative example of what this might mean for their take-home pay.
