    It's been said that the agency workers regulation 2010 requires employers to pay agency workers the same rate amd to acquire the same rights as permanent employees post 12 weeks. Why is this regulation so unpopular with business?

    Thanks

    In short the regulation would cost a substantial amount to businesses (having to pay agency workers more and give them more rights after 12 weeks work) and impacts on the business flexibility of hiring agency workers. It will most likely be repealed following Brexit.
