About this document
This agreement sets the terms under which an employment business will supply one or more people as temporary workers to a client for the purpose of hirer’s agreed work.
The difference between an employment business and an employment agency is discussed in detail here. In summary, the Conduct of Employment Agencies and Employment Businesses Regulations 2003 defines the two as:
an agency (often called a recruitment agency) is one that provides staff who are then employed by the client-employer.
a business on the other hand, hires the staff itself, who are then seconded or supplied to the client.
An employment business recruits and pays their staff directly. An employee may only work for the client for a short period of time, such as to cover maternity leave, or for a specific event.
An agency simply acts as a matchmaker between people looking for employment and future employers.
Employment businesses often provide:
- waiters, waitresses and bar staff in the hospitality industry
- secretarial and administration staff
- staff that require special training or experience that an employer is unlikely to be able to give, such as in security or nursing
- labourers and agricultural workers
If your business is a recruitment agency, see this document.
