Employment agencies and employment businesses: record keeping

Introduction

You must keep records that are sufficient to show you have complied with all the provisions of The Employment (Miscellaneous Provisions) (Northern Ireland) Order 1981 (as amended) and the Conduct of Employment Agencies and Employment Businesses Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2005 (as amended).

The Department for the Economy's Employment Agency Inspectorate (EAI) is responsible for regulating the conduct of employment agencies and employment businesses in Northern Ireland.

This guide will explain the records that employment agencies and employment businesses need to keep on work-seekers and hirers and the role of EAI inspectors in checking that businesses are complying with the law.
