A new “Key Information Document” (KID) is being introduced on the 6th April 2020, bringing extra work and administration for agencies next year. The Conduct of Employment Agencies and Employment Businesses (Amendment) has been published and adds Regulation 13A, which involves the creation of a Key Information Document (KID).

It is intended to improve the transparency of information to agency workers. The document will demonstrate to workers how a proposed rate of pay is affected by fees, and deductions made through the supply chain. Where a business works with multiple umbrella companies, for example, it is expected that they must provide a key fact page to the worker for each provider. The document must be given to the worker before the employment business reaches an agreement on the terms. As this legislation does not take effect until next year it’s important to work with your supply chain now to make sure processes are in place come April 2020.

Key Information Questionnaire Example

This document will set out key information about your relationship with SmartWork, including details about pay, holiday entitlement and other benefits. Here is a list of questions that will be included.
