From the 6th April 2020, all agency workers will need to be provided with a Key Information Document (KID) as part of an amendment to the ‘Agency Conduct Regulations’. The amendment aims to encourage transparency aong the supply chain. Each new worker must be provided with a KID which details the business relationship between the contractor, agancy and end client before a contract is agreed and signed.
The KID will improve transparency of information for agency workers, particularly regarding what they can expect to be paid and the deductions they will see. The document will give the worker a brief overview of what they can expect to earn in an assignment – outlining how their rate of pay is affected by fees and deductions made through the supply chain.
The regulation applies to agency workers who sign up after the 6th April and existing workers who sign up with a new employment business. Agency workers who are already signed up to a recruitment agency with agreed terms in place do not need to receive a KID – you can choose to issue one if you like.
The employment business must provide the agency worker with the KID. This also includes when the worker is engaged through an intermediary such as an umbrella company.
Umbrella Company UK is happy to provide agencies with KID’s for contractors who require an umbrella company. Our short form will gather all the information required to produce a Key Information Document. Once you have completed and submitted the form the KID will be sent directly to you to you.
