Gillian Econopouly, head of policy at the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC), made the claim after the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills published the final version of its guidance on AWR.
She noted that a guidance document cannot provide all the answers, so it is important now for agencies to work with clients to assess the "likely impact" of AWR and put appropriate plans in place.
"This will not only help minimise the disruption to each business, but can also create a positive advantage for agencies who can demonstrate their understanding of AWR and a clear plan for managing it in their agency," Ms Econopouly added.
Recently, a poll by the REC found that a significantly higher proportion of businesses are now aware of the implementation of AWR than 18 months ago, though the percentage could still be higher.
