The Department for Business, Innovation & Skills (BIS) has amended its guidance on the Agency Workers Regulations 2010.

Following further representations BIS have revised the chapter on Pay between Assignments to make the provisions and requirements clearer particularly in relation to treatment of annual leave.

There is a correction on the definition of "pay" – one off contractual bonus payments should not have been included in the final bullet.

Other minor amendments have been made to improve the guidance but no changes of substance other than to remove the guidance for agency supply teachers which will be extended and published shortly.

Guidance for agency workers should be available shortly on the direct.gov website.
