    Talking Reforming Employment Agencies?

    Hello all,

    Wouldn't it be amazing if the law was changed to make it mandatory for all agencies to declare their Full Commision as well as the Employer's min/max offer for every role advertised so that Contractors can decide if they want to accept a lower rate knowing that it is a true market value rather than being ripped off? Estate Agents declare this upfront before they sell houses so why not employment agencies?

    1) Will this make contracting more secure and less exploited, or will it make it even harder to find contracts?
    2) Will it clean up the industry, or will they find ways to get round it? (say via Agency registration fees?)
    3) Perhaps only an ePetition can bring the spotlight on this shark infested business?

    Please feel free to contribute to this open post any way helpful, impartial or other wise with a flame thrower. Perhaps you work as an agency drone and would like to defend your position and/or expose the rogues in the business? But just be careful and diplomatic as we don't really want to upset the website's advertising sponsors... Now do we?

    Go on have your say, I am sure the Mods will have the fire extinguisher on stand by if it gets too hot.

    Enjoy!!!

    It goes against my free market views.

    No, I don't want more regulation.

    I abhor more regulation.

    I don't want more civil servants ensuring regulations are adhered to.

    I don't want more taxation to pay for more regulation and civil servents.

    Now, just p1ss right off!

    Not really..

    Although he's a) got a grudge against this board and b) never bothered reading it if he thinks we're worried about our 'advertising sponsors'.

    I've banned one or two of them on occasion.

    my constructive opinion is that regulation is a waste of time and a solution to a problem that is either temporary or does not exist.
    The way the agents operate may be unpalatable but will only become a problem if they form into a cartel, or organise in some other way. I dont see it at the moment, I see agencies going bust and I see guys working direct. I see new agencies and I see new paradigms. like brollies

    Your , lets have a load of rules that will increase costs in order to reduce costs, and 'enjoy' attitude leave me cold

    the world is full of intefering do gooder busybody know nothings who are full of solutions to problems that only exist in their own minds. I have you tagged as one of them
