I've been working for an agency for 9 months. The job I'm on is for a company that's been on the news alot and are well known for incompetence.

 

I had been on one site for 8 months, recently I have been moved with one hours notice to another site were I was led to believe that's were I would be for the foreseeable future. Then I'm told by txt message I was to move again to a third site from Monday. The supervisor was not happy about it because she "removed at OPS request". The manager told her "removed at OPs request". I have had zero say in this. Not even a phone call. Nor have I been given details from the agency such as the address, start time, who to report to. I've had to find all that out myself!!!

 

All three sites are chronically understaffed and I'm being used as the floater to make up for this, something I did not sign up for. No body else is being made to go between sites. The first site I was on now has three staff members left from seven. I'm being given the work of four people to cover which is physically impossible.

 

Then I find out the people employed direct are on £46 per month more than me. Isn't that not allowed under AWR?

 

I've asked for an explanation off the agency re the wages and being used as a yo yo. To which I have not received a response.

Now there saying I won't get paid on Friday because my timesheet was not signed by a supervisor. It was signed I was stood next to her.

 

 

 

There also refusing to acknowledge the other staff are on more than me and to "prove it with a payslip". Not very professional at all, she spoke to me like dirt.

"You are paid the same hourly payrate as a cleaner at X in the same role, monthly pay after tax is irrelevant to your hourly rate. I cannot comment on why somebody would pick up more - maybe they have a different tax code? "

 

I've no idea why there going on about tax none of us earn enough to be taxed so as she says its irrelevant

salaries can be different for an agency worker and one paid directly, the agency would have to have your tax code weather you pay insurance or not and a different code can mean a difference in net pay. it sounds like you have had enough of this agency, if you are fed up with them go to a different one, but agency workers do have a harder time of it in some respects so you may not find a great deal of difference.

Thanks for the reply

I've checked with everyone were all on the same tax codes and I was told they were all given a pay rise in April, just when I started. No body gets taxed because we don't earn enough!

 

The boss told me today she got on the phone to the agency and they told her my timesheet was fine. Then they phoned me straight after and told me the opposite. Makes no sense to me.

 

It's a shame really because the job itself is fine.

Are they paid by the agency or direct from the employer?

I don't think its particularly any help but, even if it wasn't signed, its illegal to withhold payment for that reason under the Conduct of Employment Agencies and Employment Businesses Regulations

Well that may well explain it if the company pay x rate to employees they employ directly the agency can pay its employees what they like. Two different employers

Nope exactly the same. I've been working on the same floors with people who are directly employed.

 

I went to see an employment solicitor before for a free consult and he agreed the points of law I am using are correct and they will probably be made to pay up if intake them to ET.

 

Luckily I've just got a perm job starting mid jan. no agency this time.

I'm not quite sure of your point, san_d, but as this could go to ET I have removed the name of the company.

You put the fax number of your agency in your post. Even an idiot like me could google the number and get that information. If I was the agency I wouldn't like company details splattered all over the net.
