Final AWR Guidance to be published this week by BIS

The Head of Public Policy at the REC, Gillian Econopouly, said that \”The REC has been working with BIS over the past few months by attending the guidance workshop sessions and holding one-on-one meetings. Our priority has been to provide substantive feedback from our members and alert BIS officials to the issues which remain a source of concern for those who supply and engage temporary workers.”

“We have lately met with BIS to discuss the draft guidance in detail, and we expect to see some of the issues we raised addressed more fully in the final document. The guidance will never be a magic wand or an instant solution for dealing with AWR, but we continue to urge government to make the document as business-friendly as possible to facilitate smooth implementation and minimal disruption to the UK\’s model of flexible work.\”
