In its new AWR monitor, the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) shows that the demand for temporary and contract staff has remained strong since the regulations were implemented on October 1st last year.
Furthermore, the vast majority of employers plan to maintain or increase their temporary workforce in both the short and longer term.
So far, there have been very few early signs of workers instigating employment tribunals for alleged breaches of the new equal treatment requirements – something the REC has pledged to monitor over the coming months.
"AWR has also provided an opportunity for many agencies to build stronger links with clients and to demonstrate their ability to make the new rules as workable as possible," the REC noted.
It added that a key priority now is to continue "actively promoting" the benefits of temporary and contract work through ongoing research and initiatives such as the Flexible Work Commission.
