Government's commitment to review AWR bureaucracy is good news for recruiters, says REC

Government's commitment to review AWR bureaucracy is good news for recruiters, says REC 

In addition to the full review of the Conduct Regulations, last week's speech by the Business Secretary Vince Cable included a number of other positive messages for the industry. In particular, the REC has welcomed the specific commitment to evaluate the administrative implications of the AWR within the next 18 months.

In his speech the Business Secretary underlined the fact that "flexible labour markets are an essential component of a successful economy. It's essential they function in a way that employers have the confidence to take on new workers, create new jobs, so people out of work can get that first foot in the labour market".

With regards the AWR, the speech underlined the Government's intention to review the reporting, paperwork and bureaucracy elements of complying. 

Commenting on the announcement, Gillian Econopouly, the REC's Head of Policy says:

"Our conversation with BIS officials made it clear that this will not be review of the overall regulations. However, the commitment to identify and address unnecessary bureaucracy around AWR implementation is good news and something the REC has been calling for. We have agreed to provide Government with regular member feedback, starting with our first post-AWR meeting with BIS this week".
