What is a contract worker?

A contract worker may be an employee, a temporary worker supplied by an umbrella company or an agency or may also be known as a freelancer or sub contractor. The legislation applicable to these arrangements changes constantly which is why using our skills to recruit really adds value to your business. Keeping on top of all the legal changes in the UK and across a Global workforce takes money, time and effort; by using Skills Provision you’re provided with all the information you need to keep within the law each time you hire.

Agency Workers Directive

In force from the 1st October 2011 agency workers are given, under this piece of legislation, equal pay rights with other basic pay workers, including contract workers, after working for the employer for 12 weeks. If you are unaware of this law, did not change your contracts or take expert advice, then your business may end up paying more than it needs.
