Dispelling the myths

 
Correcting a few myths about AWR
 
 
Myth: The AWR will mean that temps cannot be taken off jobs easily because they will have the same rights to claim unfair dismissal as permanent employees

Fact:
The AWR does not grant extra employment rights. It only applies to basic pay, holidays and working conditions
 
 
 
 
 
Myth: If I want to remove a temporary worker from an assignment I will have to pay them redundancy
 
Fact: The AWR gives no right to receive redundancy pay
 
Myth: If my temps are paid more than my full time workers I will have to pay them less or increase my pay rates to my full time staff

Fact: The AWR does not ‘cut both ways’, it only demands the temp is paid at least what a permanent staff member is
