Duty of hirer to provide information to employment agency.

15.— (1) It shall be the duty of the hirer of an agency worker to provide the employment agency that employs that agency worker with all such information in the possession of the hirer as the employment agency reasonably requires to enable the employment agency to comply with its obligations under this Act in relation to the agency worker.

(2) Where proceedings in respect of a contravention of this Act are brought by an agency worker against an employment agency and the contravention is attributable to the failure by the hirer of the agency worker to comply with this section, the hirer shall indemnify the employment agency in respect of any loss incurred by the employment agency that is attributable to such failure.
