A Key Information Document (KID) must be given by an Employment businesses to temporary workers who register with them on or after 6 April 2020 (Regulation 13A of the Conduct of Employment Agencies and Employment Businesses Regulations 2003).
They do not have to give a KID to candidates looking for permanent or fixed term contract work directly with a client.
They must give the KID before agreeing terms of engagement with the temporary worker.
The purpose of the KID is to improve transparency, particularly in relation to pay and so the KID should not include all the terms of the contract between the temporary worker and the employment business – these will be set out in a separate document.
This document sets out key information about your relationship with us and the umbrella company or other intermediary used in your engagement, including details about pay, holiday entitlement and other benefits. The Employment Agency Standards (EAS) Inspectorate is the government authority responsible for the enforcement of certain agency worker rights. You can raise a concern with them directly on 020 7215 5000 or through the ACAS helpline on 0300 123 1100, Monday to Friday, 8am to 6pm.
