This week reports have surfaced that the coalition will be conducting a high-level review of the legislation, which is due to come into force in the UK on October 1st and has been both praised and criticised by members of the recruitment industry.
A representative from the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills told the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) that there would be no change to the AWR's implementation date and the impact of the changes would be monitored in the coming months.
Kevin Green, REC chief executive, said the body welcomes any moves to make life easier for recruiters members, though admitted he thought it unlikely any changes would be made at such a late stage.
"We have written to the prime minister this week to emphasise the need to monitor the practical impact of the regulations on the industry, and we will continue to push for an early review," he added.
Mr Green also stressed the organisation's commitment to helping members prepare for AWR, and to influence how employers respond by underlining the "ongoing benefits" of having a flexible workforce.
