Can temporary workers employed by an agency receive redundancy pay?
Monday 22 September 2008 7.50am
I doubt it.

In certain instances, Jan, yes they would be entitled. There is a 'deemed employment' clause in many agency contracts. Even without this clause, deemed employment is part of employment law.

I think I am right in saying that no company has to pay redundancy to an employee with less than two years continuous service. This will also impact on the employment regs.

A bit vague - but maybe hopeful?

I have worked here about several years plus as my only booking, via the agency! at my age it's very unlikely I'll get another posting...:-(

Jan, contact Citizens Advise Bureau, or a trade union. Once you've worked for a year at the same place your employment rights increase (which is why employers and agencies like 51 week contracts).

Jan, try REC too. Your agency is likely REC registered. Even if not they may be able to advise.

BIRDIE! I thought you'd emigrated to New Zealand.

no that was TLMJJ - she emigrated, but is back for three weeks holiday. Birdie's been here all along.

#Well, I think I knew that, since I was at TLMJJ's wedding and saw her off. Then Birdie went to visit. And Birdie came back. Since when Birdie has gone to ground. So I thought, er..well...perhaps NZ was SO great she decided to follow TLMJJs example.Just kidding, but really Birdie HAS been absent fromthe forum for ages. Meantime TLMJJ WHERE CAN WE SEE YOU??????(and pictures of the dog of course - never mind Davo).
