Our 5 tips to avoid unexpected agency fees

Many GP practices are turning to employment and recruitment agencies to provide locum GPs or nurse practitioners as temporary workforce solutions. Although agencies must comply with The Conduct of Employment Agencies and Employment Businesses Regulations 2003, practices can be caught out by unexpected charges when agencies claim for “introduction”, “placement” or “transfer” fees in respect of locum staff.

These fees can be substantial. They are often calculated with reference to a percentage of the worker’s annual salary or multiple of their hourly rate and there is no restriction on the level of fee which agencies can charge where they have been legitimately incurred.

Capsticks’ experts have significant expertise in helping clients minimise the risk of being caught unawares with additional fees.
