Frequently asked questions
Temporary workers are employed by an employment agency, usually on the basis of an indefinite contract. They then work for clients, or “user employers” as they are also known. The employment agency remains the employer, paying the workers’ salaries.
Temporary workers must earn the same as workers employed by the client’s business to do comparable work, as equal pay is a matter of principle. In certain circumstances a tariff agreement for temporary work is applied.
It is important for the company to hold a licence to operate a business providing employees. In order to form an opinion and get to know each other, you should take the opportunity to have a qualifying interview with the staff administrator who will be your partner at the agency. During the interview, make sure that they gather information about your skills and the important questions discussed in connection with your situation.
Usually this is no problem whatsoever. It’s not rare for clients to employ agency workers permanently. Currently every third temporary worker is taken on full time at a client’s business. It’s not only because of this that work within an employment lease is considered a gateway.
