AWR new for 2012

Happy New Year from everyone at Webroster.net!

Back in December, Webroster.net v2.3.0 was released with new AWR functionality to help customers manage the new Agency Worker Regulations (AWR).

Agency Worker Regulations

AWR came into force at the end of last year. The legislation requires temporary workers to be given equal rights and conditions to directly employed staff upon completion of a 12 week qualifying period in the same role at the same company.

Webroster.net v2.3.0 includes new functionality to help system users manage the 12 week qualifying period and any uplift to staff pay and charges that may be required in order for temporary staff to be given the same pay, terms and conditions as an employed worker.

Use Webroster.net to overcome time-consuming manual processes

Many Webroster.net customers either supply or hire temporary workers and so are greatly affected by the regulations. We have therefore added a series of complex formulas to Webroster.net in order for it to be used as a tool to manage the qualification and administration of AWR. The aim is to negate lengthy manual processes for our customers and help them to ensure they operate in line with the legislation.

AWR qualification is based on the staff member carrying out a Role for a Hirer over a 12 week period. So, Webroster.net can check for unique Hirer-Role pairings for AWR purposes based on timesheet information, and automatically apply relevant uplifts at the appropriate time.

How has your business been affected by AWR? We would live to hear from you, please comment below or email info@webroster.net.
