Agency Workers Directive - Impact Calculator

Calculate how much extra your business pays to subcontractors as a result of the Agency Workers Regulations

If you subcontract work to agency workers, you can use this calculator to determine the financial impact of the Agency Workers Regulations (AWR) on your business.

The regulations came into force in October 2011 and are designed to ensure that agency workers enjoy equal treatment in terms of basic working conditions as permanent staff. This includes access to holiday and sick pay.

This calculator works out the extra costs of holiday and sick pay for agency workers you hire.

Please enter your agency worker’s rate to assess the additional cost to your business:
