The Association of Professional Staffing Companies (APSCo) today announced that initial discussions have taken place among recruiters regarding the review of the Conduct of Employment Agencies and Employment Businesses Regulations.
APSCo has run its first working group meeting which consists of over twenty members and affiliate members, who have volunteered to work with the association in shaping its response to the consultation.
“We feel it is crucial to garner the views of members before responding to what is an extremely important consultation – and one which will shape the future of regulation in the industry,” said Samantha Hurley from APSCo who is also chairing the group.
She said initial discussions focused on ways in which to differentiate the highly paid limited company contractors, which most APSCo members’ contract with, from the lower-paid more vulnerable sectors, at which the legislation is aimed.
“This is a point which we are sure will be discussed at some length when representatives from the Department of Business Innovation and Skills (BIS) attend our Members’ meeting in March – a move which we think is a positive indication that BIS wishes to hear the discrete viewpoints of those recruiters at the more senior end of the market,” said Ms Hurley.
