Legal knowledge, business instinct.
They are the Conduct of Employment Agencies and Employment Business Regulations 2003, it is a bit of a mouthful so often shortened to the conduct regulations. They can also be known as the agency conduct regulations or the EAA regulations, this being because they flow from the employment agencies act of 1973.
There is an ongoing consultation on the regulation of the umbrella industry. Proposals within this could have a significant effect on an employment business’s operations and potential liabilities. These include proposals for mandatory due diligence, the transfer of umbrella tax debts and even employment businesses operating as the employer of umbrella workers for tax purposes.
The High Court has today ruled that the 2022 repeal of R.7 of the Conduct Regulations, which banned the supply of temporary workers to replace those on official strike action, was unlawful.
The name of the current consultation ‘Tackling non-compliance in the umbrella company market’ suggests that the subject is the regulation of umbrella companies. However, the proposals, if adopted, will directly impact the operations of recruitment supply businesses. Do recruitment businesses want more rules and risks?
