Can some please explain what NIERS is to me and should my husband be paying this himself.

Here are our details:

Tax code 810L/W1 - working for labouring agency paid by another company

64 hours @ 8.50 £544.00

Company Deductions
-£ 18.00 Company Margin
-£ 46.32 HMRC Payment NIERS

Employee Deductions
-64.60 Tax
-40.04 National Insurance

Take home £375.04

Its bad enough paying someone £18 per week to get paid let alone another charge being taken from his wages. Please can any help? Thankyou

NIERS = Employer's National Insurance

Normally employer National Insurance would be paid by the employer, but as he works through an agency presumably he signed a contract stating that he would accept liability for the employer charge. This can be seen often with individuals working through "umbrella companies" (mentioned in your other post).
