Agency Worker Engagement Across the Covid-19 Pandemic

Date Published: 02 July 2020

If you engage an agency worker to undertake work at this time, please be aware:


  • Agency Workers will be paid while they are undertaking self-isolation for the 7 / 14 consecutive days as set out by the Government.​
  • Where an agency worker cannot undertake shifts, due to the establishment being forced to close, we would honour payment for shifts that had been allocated across the first week of closure.

(An agency worker is an individual with a contractual employment relationship with an employment agency. These workers are paid directly by the agency and may be substituted by the agency at their discretion).
