Asos axes controversial temp agency

Asos has reportedly ended its contract with controversial employment agency Transline, which is on the brink of insolvency.

Transline provided workers for the etailers warehouse in Barnsley and filed notice of intent to appoint administrators last week, after being dropped by Amazon, The Guardian reported.

Transline’s zero-hour contract policy has previously been called into question by MPs.  

In a statement to the newspaper Asos’s warehouse operator XPO Logistics said it made the move to ensure continuous work for its staff: “Following the filing by Transline of a notice of intention to appoint an administrator, we decided in conjunction with our customer to terminate the contract with Transline and appoint PMP Recruitment.”

Transline continues to operate.
