Agency Workers: Consultation Document

The government has issued a consultation document on how best to implement the EC Agency Workers Directive (see bulletins of 20th March and 22nd March 2002).

It appears from the DTI commentary that the DTI intends to take advantage of the exemption providing that the equal treatment requirement need not apply to agency workers who work on a task (or series of tasks) that will last less than six weeks.

The full consultation documents is available at http://www.dti.gov.uk/er/agency/directive.htm . Responses are sought by not later than 18th October 2002.
