What is ERA Services?

ERA Services provides an independent assessment benchmarked by current employment law, enabling the employer (including agencies or umbrella companies) to demonstrate with confidence their compliance with a certification that is scrutinised by a government-backed third party.

Benefits To ERA Certificate Holders

There are a number of benefits that going through the ERA Services Certification Process will give you. Immediately it will show your employees, as well as current or potential business partners that your employment practices adhere to all current government standards, having had these audited by a dedicated third party. Having processes clearly documented and in place can benefit the efficient running of any business.

Benefits To The Supply Chain

Seeing the ERA certificate should instill confidence that your B2B connections have been thoroughly assessed and demonstrated compliance with legislation.

ERA AND UMBRELLA COMPANIES

Currently we know that there is talk of regulating umbrella companies and we understand why. The need to demonstrate compliance on a more frequent basis has affected many agencies and requesting additional certification from umbrella companies is now commonplace.

There are various companies who offer assessments and certifications and this gives agencies peace of mind that their contractors are being looked after and things are done correctly. Not all of these are affordable or accessible for smaller umbrella companies, but ERA Services has a fair and affordable pricing structure, and as long as you have 1 employee, you can opt for an ERA assessment.

ERA conducts a thorough, impartial assessment of all aspects of employment rights from minimum wage, holiday pay, modern slavery, and confirmation that all taxes are paid appropriately and on time for both your internal and umbrella workers, along with the additional responsibilities for your umbrella workers in line with AWR, the EAA Conduct Regulations and Key Information Documents.  The ERA audit is not just a case of ticking boxes and providing documents; in line with UKAS procedures, we look at the processes in place to ensure that a company is following them to be the best employer that they can be.

Holding an ERA certificate should reassure your agencies that you uphold the standards set for all employers in the UK and that your contractors are well taken care of.

ERA AND RECRUITMENT AGENCIES

We do recognise that in the temporary workforce sector that there has been much unrest over the last few years caused mainly by constant changes to taxation and employment law legislation and appreciate that recruitment agencies are under more and more pressure from end clients to evidence their compliance, and this includes their relationships with umbrella companies. The ERA assessment is tailored with additional questions that deal with your responsibilities as an employer of your internal staff, along with additional responsibilities for your temporary workers such as AWR day one and week 12 rights, EAA Conduct Regulations and the Key Information Document.

The ERA audit is not just a case of ticking boxes and providing documents; in line with UKAS procedures, we look at the processes in place to ensure that a company is following them to be the best employer that they can be.
