After completion of the 12 week qualifying period the Agency Worker is entitled to the same basic terms and conditions of employment as if they had been directly hired by the Employer/Hirer. ... pregnant workers will be entitled to paid time off for antenatal appointments.

Hi Ian

I will check, but I'm pretty sure that applies to a temporary worker who is being contracted directly to the company under a single contract, not through an agency.

Hi Damon ,

"After 13 weeks you have the same rights as any full time person there"

Sorry, but no you don't. I just replied to Ian and as explained it's all down to the contractual side of things

Hi Ian

"2 years until you have workers rights in full and can claim unfair dismissal"

Sorry, but that's a bit of an urban myth.
Although it's true for a small number of cases, the actual "rights" of the worker are totally dependant on the type of contract the worker signs with the agency and the supply agreement said agency has with the client/company they are supplying staff to

Hi Ross

Your contract is with the agency not with the company they are providing your sevices to.
The company has every right to discontinue the arrangement if it is under an on going "temporary services contract" basis as does the agency to terminate their arrangement with you.
If the contract you have with the agency is fixed term and the contract they have with the company is also fixed term there is a possibility you may have some recourse.
Best thing to do is contact the agent, let them know what's going on and how you feel and they should let you know the situation, scenario and options

Sorry only just seen this thread, sounds like possible grounds for discrimination against you having diabetes though it depends on the company they may to a degree be able to say they are acting in the businesses best interests with the current climate in mind.

Itís not your fault , none of us have a crystal ball which says life is going to be problem free.

Have a look on the diabetes.co.uk website, a few threads on their legally they could be in very hot water.

Good luck mate.

He will just tell the agency he no longer requires your service

His contract is with the agency and not directly with you

Right then just a quick one. I've been working at a company for 4 months now and been doing okay ish. I've got diabetes and I did start a new injection that made me feel very sick and fee other problem with it. So I had 3 days sick with it. Today I got told from my supervisor that I get on with that one of the (manager) wonted to get rid off me as he recons I've had 2 mutch time of sick. I've had Prof that it's been my diabetes. The question is even though I'm on the agency is there anything I can do if he trys to get rid off me ? Any info would be great thanks guys
