Media Release: Contractors still in demand after AWR implementation, claims Tarpon


THE 1st of October 2011 saw the introduction of the Agency Workers Regulations (AWR). To help highlight the importance and awareness of the implementation date, there was a much required push to help educate those affected, with many leading groups collaborating and ensuring that there was maximum exposure towards the deadline date.

UK’s leading umbrella company Tarpon believe that the introduction of the AWR will not affect the demand for agency workers and others involved.

According to the latest Recruitment and Employment Confederation’s (REC) JobsOutlook Report, the legislation offers a positive outlook with 83 per cent of employers polled intending to retain or increase their temporary staff over the next three months, with 86 per cent planning to increase or maintain levels over the next 12 months.

A spokesperson from Tarpon has stated that:

“At Tarpon we offer our employee’s a genuine employment solution that offers entitlement to a full-time, permanent employment contract, creating a problem free solution for contractors. As a company we are proud to offer 100 per cent protection against any employment law and tax challenges.”
