Full time or temporary employees debate

What are your obligations?

An article by The Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) details how permanent employee placements are falling at the sharpest rate in over seven years. The report by Markit/REC on Jobs was published on 5th August 2016 and provides a comprehensive guide to the UK la​bo​ur market.

As permanent placements are falling temporary/Contract staff billing is on the rise and the report concludes the rise in employers taking on 'casual' workers has stemmed from Brexit related concerns.

There is a long standing debate on the employment rights and employer obligations for temporary/contact staff and don't be fooled into thinking that your obligations to employees are less because they are employed on a temporary basis - temporary workers have broadly the same employment rights as full time employees.
