  • Legal Body
    Employment Appeal Tribunal (UKEAT)
  • Type of Claim / Jurisdiction
    A-Typical Working, Pay and Conditions of Employment
Issues covered: Agency Workers Regulations 2010

This case follows on from a previous EAT decision in which it was found that the claimant met the criteria under Regulation 3 of the Agency Workers Regulations 2010.  The issues then arising related to the application of the rules relating to agency workers.  

By way of background, Angard was an employment agency which was wholly owned by Royal Mail.  It provides agency workers for Royal Mail.  The claimants raised issues stating that there was a breach of Regulation 5 of the Agency Worker Regulations which allows for agency workers to be entitled to the same working and employment conditions as those who are working in the same role for the hirer directly.
