Abstract
Temporary employment was legalized in 1992 in Sweden and the development has since been strong.

This provision means that the basic working and employment conditions for temporary agency workers should be similar to those applicable to employment in the customer company for equivalent service.

Temporary employment was legalized in 1992 in Sweden and the development has since been strong. A Euro directive on working conditions for temporary workers was passed by the European Parliament in 2008. The directive on temporary agency work contains a principle of equal treatment of employees in the temporary-work agencies. This provision means that the basic working and employment conditions for temporary agency workers should be similar to those applicable to employment in the customer company for equivalent service. It is possible to derogate from the principle of equal treatment by solutions in the national collective agreement, provided that the overall protections of the leased workers are respected, and that they do not violate EC law. The directive has been received with differing opinions on the Swedish labour market. One view is that the directive constitutes a threat to the so-called Swedish model, where wages and employment conditions are determined by negotiations between both sides of the labour market. This negotiation can be deprived the parties of the temporary-work agencies due to the manning directive. An alternative view is in favour of the directive, which will contribute to a fairer competition and greater social security for temporary workers. The purpose of the paper is to analyze and identify development and future prospects of the temporary-work agencies. It will focus on how the temporary-work agencies will be affected by the new regulations in the area and how the implementation will be executed. (Less)
