There will be no independent body tasked with policing and enforcing the Regulations. Instead you will be able to pursue a claim in an Employment Tribunal in order to enforce your rights. Such claims can either be brought against the hirer the agency or both depending on the particular breach in question. The Employment Tribunal will analyse the facts to determine to what extent each party is responsible for the breach of the Regulations. We recommend that you try to resolve the issue informally before making an Employment Tribunal claim.
