The AWR Toolkit is for use by APSCo members only, and their clients. The facts, information, and opinions contained herein are correct to the best of APSCo’s knowledge as of the time of publication. However, this is intended as a concise, introductory guide to the legislation and not as a substitute for legal advice. Our aim with this toolkit is to help members and their clients understand this legislation by providing an overview of the Agency Worker Regulations 2010 (“Regulations”) and to pinpoint some of the issues surrounding the impact and risks presented by it. These documents do not constitute an exhaustive and complete reference guide for the Regulations. The Regulations can be downloaded here.
