Recruitment Companies or Agencies

A recruitment company is a business which is paid to find suitable workers for other companies and organisations.

If you have a complaint against a recruitment company please visit the UK regulator, The Employment Agency Standards Inspectorate.

If you are concerned that your recruitment company or agency is acting improperly or treating you unfairly, you can report this to JobsAware.

Rest breaks

A rest break is an uninterrupted break taken during work. You might be entitled to rest breaks depending on the length of your working day, your age and the type of work you do.

Find guidance from the UK Government website on rest breaks.
