Make pba contracts for agency workers illegal

This petition had 49 supporters

Employment agencies use a little known ruse called "paid between assignment" contracts to circumvent the employment laws.this mean where the current law states that agency workers must be treated no differently to employees after a 16 week period.  A paid between assignment contract means the agengy agrees to pay the agency workers between contracts if they cannot find work for them, sounds good?. In reality they only have to guarantee as little as one hour a week at minimum wage. When an agency worker is employed on a pba contract they have basically no rights to be treated equally under existing laws.
