The new Agency Workers Regulations start on October 1st, basically they entitle agency workers to the same basic employment and working conditions as if they had been recruited directly, if and when they complete a qualifying period of 12 week in same job.

This is the link to the Govt guidance, 50 pages! Check if the rules apply to you. One basic rule is that agency workers are entitled to the same rate of pay as those who work directly for you.
