Areas of Law / Employment

Through an agency I have been employed exclusively by one company for more than two years. Is the company now obliged to offer me full-time employment in this position? They say this might be possible but that my salary would be less than I receive from the agency.

They are not obliged to offer you a permanent job, but under the Agency Workers Regulations they must give you access to information about relevant job vacancies. After 12 weeks in the post you became entitled to the same basic employment and working conditions as if you had been recruited directly, so you qualify for the same pay, holiday pay etc as any comparable employee. If you apply for a permanent job your pay could be re-negotiated.
