Key information document guidance published for agency workers

17 November 2022

The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) has produced guidance on the key information document (KID) for agency workers.

Since April 2020, employment businesses, such as umbrella companies, are required to issue a KID to new temporary workers who are engaged by them. The document lays out the relationship and:

  • who will pay the employee
  • how often can they expect to be paid
  • holiday entitlement
  • additional benefits.

The new guidance page explains who needs a KID and what it must include for different scenarios.
