Conduct of Employment Agencies and Employment Businesses Regulations 2003 come into force

Implementation date: 6 April 2004

Under the new Regulations organisations offering work-finding services are required to make it clear whether they operate as employment agencies or employment businesses. The rules prevent agencies charging a fee when a temporary employee is permanently engaged, unless an extended hiring period has first been offered on usual terms. The Regulations can be viewed on the OPSI website.
