The EU have recently made it law that if a temp is kept on for longer than 9 months they are entitled to benifits such as sick pay, holiday entitlement, etc.

Does anyone know if that time period begins when the law was introduced or if it goes back to when the temp began their contract?

If the latter than I could be looking for a job soon <img src="/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" /> (unless they actually decide to make me permanent along with a majority of the rest of the office).

If it was back-dated they'd have to pay you for all the days you've had off sick, holiday etc since you began your conmtract.

Temps have been entitled to holiday and sick pay since around 1999. Holiday pay is normally calculated at the average daily rate earnt over the previous twelve weeks. Temps are entitled to holiday and sick pay from day 1 of an assignment. I should know, I run an agnecy!

Are temps entitled to a lunch break?

If you work more than 6 hours you are entitled to a break of 20 minutes.

5 weeks because of operations - unpaid. First days off 'sick' since I was 18 and worked in Sainsbury's.

You are not entitled to company sick pay but as long as you have a doctor's certificate and are off for four or more days you are entitled to statutory sick pay. If you are going through an agency then they should pay you this.

You cannot sign up to something excluding you from this because UK employment law supercedes any contract of employment

And if I've just thrown the sick certificate away because I thought it worthless....?

The words going around my head are not even printable in the filthiest of books.

Five weeks worth of wages. Five weeks. That would have paid off 20% of my student loan. <img src="/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" />

Well that's made my day.

Surely it's possible to get a duplicate. People surely can't lose their entitlement if a certificate is lost or stolen or destroyed for some reason which they didn't have any control over.

Have phoned agency but heard nothing back (oh what a surprise). Regardless of whether I'm entitled to it or not, I bet I won't get the money. Hell, it's not as though I work for a very wealthy international investment bank that has a fleet of Mercedes parked outside every hour of every day just in case one of the over-paid directors fancy going home early.

Surely the key word here is "work" - how long you have worked somewhere, etc etc.

Clearly LMU does no work at all. She is always either too hungover, playing on the forum or both.

Quite right too.

LMU,

The Agency Workers Directive is still in draft form - it is expected that there will be a common position by December 2003, with the directive taking force some time later in 2004. It will then take time to filter through to UK law. The link below will take you to the EU Website with the latest position.

It is riveting reading!! Good Luck!

There is still one heck of a lot of negotiations going on about the agency workers directive. Much of it surrounds temp to perm fees and equal rights/benefits for tempsas opposed to permanent employees doing the same job. I guess this will go on for some time yet.

Been here for a little over 10 months. Agency called to say I may get a set amount per day (starting day 4). It's like being on the dole again. Still more than I was expecting a couple of days ago.

Just phoning other agency to check...

I need to give them the doctor's note (bum <img src="/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" />) and then have a chat with them to discuss the situation or something. Unfortunately, it sounds as though it'll be around 10% of my normal pay but I'm saving for the impossible (a place I can call my own) so every little helps. <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
