Q. What are the key entitlements under the act?

i)         Basic Working and Employment Conditions:  Agency workers have the right, from day one of employment, to be treated no less favourably in terms of basic working and            employment conditions than if they had been directly recruited by the Hirer to do the same or similar work.

ii)       Access to Collective Facilities and Amenities:  Agency workers have the right to be treated no less favourably than directly hired employees with regard to access to                     collective facilities and amenities such as canteen or other facilities, child care facilities and transport services, unless there is objective justification for treating the                       agency worker less favourably.

iii)      Access to Employment by the Hirer:  Agency workers have the right to be informed of vacant positions arising within the Hirer. The Act provides, that when a Hirer is
          informing its employees of any vacant position with the Hirer, it must also inform any agency worker assigned to the Hirer at time of the vacancy in order to enable the
          agency worker to apply for the position.
