Court of Appeal judgment on agency workers' rights - Kocur v Angard Staffing Solutions Ltd [CA] 11.07.19 (Unreported)
An agency worker's entitlement to the "same... conditions" of work as a permanent employee within the meaning of the Agency Workers Regulations 2010 reg.5(1) did not extend to an entitlement to be offered the same number of hours of work as those performed by a permanent employee. "Duration of working time" in reg.6(1)(b) was intended to refer to terms which set a maximum length for any periods of work in the context of the entire working week. Therefore, reg.5(1) did not apply to a term specifying a 39-hour working week.http://www.bailii.org/ew/cases/EWCA/Civ/2019/1185.html
