There is concern in the recruitment industry that the Government may try to placate the Unions in the current fire dispute by diluting its opposition to the EU Agency Workers Directive. Association of Technology Staffing Companies (ATSCo) released the following news release on this topic.
The Directive on Temporary Agency Work (2008/104/EC) defines a general framework applicable to the working conditions of temporary workers in the European Union. The Directive aims to guarantee a minimum level of effective protection to temporary workers and to contribute to the development of the temporary work sector as a flexible option for employers and workers.
