If you are a pregnant agency worker you will be entitled to paid time off to attend pregnancy related medical appointments and antenatal classes once you achieve the 12 weeks’ qualifying service. You will need to show the agency your appointment card or other proof of appointment (except for the first appointment).

In addition, if an assignment is terminated on pregnancy related health and safety grounds the agency will have to find you suitable alternative work on terms which are not substantially less favourable than the previous assignment. If the agency cannot find you suitable alternative work the agency will be required to pay you for the remainder of the original assignment. If you unreasonably refuse suitable alternative work you will not be entitled to such pay.
