Qualifying agency workers to receive equal pay


From the 6 April 2020, the ability for employers to pay agency workers less than their own workers, in certain circumstances, is abolished (known as the Swedish derogation).

Under the derogation, agency workers can exchange their right to be paid the same as directly recruited employees for a contract guaranteeing pay between assignments. Now that this has been abolished, employers must ensure that agency workers, who have completed the 12-week qualifying period, are paid equally to other staff.
