The Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) says that Agency Workers Regulations (AWR) allow businesses to build flexibility into their workforce, with the key being to ensure that they are implemented through a partnership approach between employers and agencies.
Kevin Green, the REC's chief executive, said one of the effects of the new regulations is that some temporary workers are being employed on a permanent basis by agencies.
"This is good news for temps as they get more job security. At the same time, agencies can benefit from having committed workers on their books and employers continue to have access to a crucial flexible resource," he added.
He also noted that options such as the 'Swedish Derogation' model do not provide 'get-out clauses' but rather legitimate new supply methods.
If properly implemented, it is a good way of protecting jobs and keeping the UK workforce flexible, Mr Green stated.
