Recruitment Consultant, the UK’s leading magazine to the staffing industry, holds quarterly Law and Taxation breakfast seminars to discuss topical issues and debates. This quarter, the seminar will focus on the forthcoming Agency Workers Regulations, and leading legal tax experts, Osborne Clarke will be on hand to share key information about how business requirements may change as a result of the upcoming legislation.
From the 1st October 2011, the Agency Workers Regulations state that agency workers, once in a consistent role at the same company for 12 weeks, will have the right to receive equal treatment with regards to pay and basic working conditions, as permanent staff directly hired by the organisation. The seminar therefore aims to help visitors to make any vital last minute checks to their business to ensure compliance.
Following on from a successful client event that Bond recently held on the subject of AWR compliance, Bond International Software will be sponsoring Recruitment Consultant’s latest breakfast seminar. Following this event, AWR software specialist Bond will be inviting prospective clients to view exclusive demonstrations of the brand new AWR workflow within the latest version of staffing agency software Bond Adapt.
Jim Tanfield, Editor of Recruitment Consultant, comments, “As of the 1st October, the temporary recruitment landscape will be virtually unrecognisable from anything that recruiters have previously been used to. As such, our seminar stands to educate those who remain in the dark about how to become compliant with the regulations. As the only software provider to sponsor our event, AWR software provider Bond is demonstrating a fierce commitment to providing the market with answers as to how the AWR may affect specific processes, as well as entire business practices.”
Tim Richards, Managing Director of Bond UK, comments, “The Recruitment Conference Law Taxation Series provides us with the ideal platform to demonstrate conclusively to the entire industry that we are leading the market in taking AWR software so seriously and have provided solutions that enable recruiters to become and remain compliant with the legislation.”
Held at One London Wall, London, the breakfast seminar has been organised to ensure recruitment consultancies are fully prepared for the forthcoming Agency Workers Regulations, to be introduced on the 1st October this year.
As the only software provider to sponsor the seminar, Bond International Software is further demonstrating its commitment to helping its clients to become and remain AWR compliant with its AWR software, Bond Adapt.
