Laws & Regulations

laws & regulations

A strong legal understanding and process is imperative to our business.

From AWR to EAA, IR35 to Working Time Directive, Anti-Bribery, HMRC Reporting Requirements, Intellectual Property, Data Protection laws to the use of umbrella or PSC limited companies, the UK and wider European contracts marketplace is awash with rules and regulations. Whether you are an experienced freelancer or a first-time contractor, our role is to make sure that the correct contracts and legal framework are in place to comply with all the relevant legislation surrounding the supply of contract services.

And from the Employment Agencies Act through to the more recent Good Work Plan introduced in early 2020, there are also as many regulations applying to the permanent recruitment market and employment agencies as there are to contracting and employment businesses.

Cornwallis Elt has been a full member of APSCo since 2017 and we use their industry recognised contracts which are fully compliant with all current legislation. We also have strong in-house legal knowledge (and additional access to the APSCo legal helpdesk for extra support), giving us the ability to deal with every situation which might arise.

As an established and leading provider of both permanent and contract staff in the UK, you can be certain that you are dealing with a professional and knowledgeable partner.
