no its not that one, its just I know I saw it recently! god its annoying I usually keep stuff! thank you for your help, our is office is going to disagreement! no one made up to full time from part time, manager went round and asked, it got kicked back! so they are saying if the office is likely to fail then they will use agency, but they are unwilling to make part time to full, when there is workload there and manager went round asking! oh the joys! its getting kicked upstairs,

2.7.4 Agency workers are intended to cover short term or unforeseen resourcing needs, expected to last for periods of no more than 12 weeks, which cannot be covered by offering additional hours to existing employees whilst maintaining quality of service. In the rare circumstances that employment exceeds 12 weeks the provisions of the Agency Workers Regulations 2010 (as amended) will apply.



2.7.7 The level of part time Employees’ contracted hours will be jointly reviewed locally on a six monthly basis. Where appropriate, increased contracted hours will be offered to reflect the hours actually worked and planned.

Cannot find LTB specific to agency use. I expect you have seen this LTB & attachment.

Edited from;
LTB 667/19 – Christmas Arrangements 2019/20
19LTB667

Att LTB667
 Pre-scheduling hours against forecast workload
 Scheduled Attendance or pressure overtime in line with Section 5 below
 The opportunity for part timers/less than full time staff to increase their contracted hours
 Use of temporary/agency staff as supplementary resource

7 Temporary Variation to Contractual Status To ensure parity of treatment, where workload supports the increase, part time or 35 hour full time staff performing 38 hour duties may extend their contractual hours to 38 for the Christmas period through a temporary variation of contract in line with the current process.
