Record keeping for employment agencies and businesses

1. Overview

If you’re running an employment agency or employment business you must keep proper records on the work-seekers and hirers you do business with.

You must keep the records for set amounts of time and make them easily available to Employment Agency Standards (EAS) inspectors.

If an inspector finds you’re breaking the rules they can:

  • send out warnings
  • recommend you’re taken to court
  • seek a prohibition order through an employment tribunal
