Is it legal for an employment agency to charge candidates money?
Have you been victim of an agency employment scam?
Would you like to claim your money back and report an employment fraud?
Employment agencies and employment businesses are prohibited by the Employment Agencies Act 1973 and the Conduct of Employment Agencies and Employment Businesses Regulations 2003, from charging or seeking to charge work-seekers to find or seek work for them.
Can an agency or employment business require a work-seeker to use additional services?
Agencies and employment businesses are prohibited from requiring work-seekers to use services for which they are entitled to charge money as condition of providing work-finding services.
They are also prohibited from requiring work-seekers to hire or purchase goods as a condition of providing work-finding services to a work-seeker.
These restrictions apply to services provided by the agency or employment business itself and also to services provided by any person with whom the agency or employment business is connected.
