Driver Hire launches free AWR Seminars

The Agency Workers Regulations come into effect on 1st October. Whilst the regulations don’t change the many benefits and flexibility of using agency staff, they do introduce rules and regulations of which all employers must be aware.

So to help customers to gain a working knowledge of the Regulations and understand what they mean for you, Driver Hire is running a series of free half-day seminars which cover everything you need to know. The seminars will be presented by both industry and legal experts, who will help you on issues including:

* What are the Agency Workers Regulations all about?
* What effect will they have on my business, and my use of temporary staff?
* How do I ensure that my business complies with this new legislation?
* How are the Regulations likely to be interpreted by employment tribunals?
* What should a good employment business be doing to help you? 

Driver Hire has participated fully in government consultation during the development of these Regulations, helping to ensure that they are as fair and user-friendly as possible for workers and employers. Our dedicated AWR project team has developed specially-designed software, processes and reporting systems to help our offices and our customers stay AWR compliant.

The seminars run from 9.00am to 12.30pm, and lunch will be provided. Take your pick from the following venues:

September 7th:  Hilton Hotel, Bradford
September 8th:  Crowne Plaza Hotel, Glasgow
September 13th:  Hilton Hotel, Coventry
September 14th:  Hallmark Hotel, Croydon
September 20th:  Mercure South Marsden Hotel & Spa, Swindon
