What is a Key Information Document form?

Key information documents are intended to give agency workers a number of pay related facts, along with some other details about their engagement, prior to agreeing terms with an employment business.

This is so they have more information about their pay at an earlier stage, particularly so that they can see how deductions and fees affect their pay through the supply chain.

Best practice timescale for this to be issued
When should this form be issued?
From 6 April 2020, employment businesses must give all new agency workers a key information document before agreeing contractual terms. In practice, this means a key information document will need to be one of the first things an employment business gives agency workers.
Issued by who, to whom
Who should issue this form, and to whom?
The Company (you) to the Candidate
Applicable legal jurisdiction
In which jurisdiction can this form be used?
Great Britain & NI (United Kingdom)

What legislation or best practices underpin this template / should I be aware of?

  • Key information documents for agency workers must outline minimum expected earnings, including statutory deductions like income tax, and describe all pay deductions, either by stating amounts or explaining calculations.

  • Representative examples in key facts pages must illustrate how deductions affect take-home pay using real numbers, even if estimates, reflecting various payment methods.

  • Employment businesses should offer standard key facts pages for different payment methods and may show workers these options to help them understand deductions, though it's not mandatory. Each worker must receive a document relevant to their payment method.

  • Updates to key information documents are necessary only when changes occur, such as new deductions or rights under employment regulations, rather than for every assignment.
