Interim Managers and the Agency Workers Regulations (AWR)
The Agency Workers Regulations (AWR) which were implemented in the UK on the 1st October, were designed to protect law-paid agency workers from exploitation, not to tie up professional interim managers and their clients in ‘red tape’.
Professional Interim Managers and Executives who are genuinely in business on their own account fall ‘out of scope’ of these regulations. That means they may be engaged on inclusive day-rate invoiced costs without concern for the fetters and administration of either employees or agency temps, whether they are engaged via an interm service provider/recruiter or come direct.
