London, UK (PRWEB) June 21, 2011
Umbrella company FPS Group has published a free white paper to help independent contractors, freelancers and agency workers understand new employment legislation, the Agency Workers Regulations (AWR), being introduced later this year by the UK government. Agency workers can download the white paper at http://www.fpsgroup.com/emails/awr2011.php and will be entered into a draw for VIP tickets to the British Formula One Grand Prix at Silverstone on 10th July 2011.
“The new AWR legislation is going to have major repercussions for the way agency workers are recruited and employed in future, and we want to help individuals to make the right decisions for their own specific situations,” says Simon Last-Sutton, managing director, FPS Group. “Our white paper explains the changes and explores a range of options for agency workers, recruiters and employers to remain compliant under the new regulations.”
AWR comes into force on 01 October and will directly impact all agencies and umbrella companies. It covers any agency worker who comes under the supervision of the hirer, except those who are self employed. The new legislation will entitle agency workers to the same basic employment and working conditions in relation to pay, working time and annual leave as if they were recruited directly by the hiring company once they have completed a qualifying period of 12 weeks in the same job.
The FPS umbrella company's free whitepaper covers:
- What is AWR?
- The impact of AWR on agencies and hirers
- Options and solutions for agency workers
The winner of the VIP tickets to the British Formula One Grand Prix on 10 July 2011 will enjoy:
- Hospitality facility
- General admission
- Centre transfer admission
- Hospitality admission
- All day Chefs table including breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea
- Full complimentary bar all day including champagne
The draw will take place on 1st July 2011 and will be announced on the FPS Group website. There will be the opportunity to win a different VIP experience every month to the end of September ranging from dinner for two at the Ritz followed by tickets to see the “Wizard of Oz”, VIP tickets to see England take on India at the Oval and VIP tickets to see Rihanna at the O2 in London.
