Abstract
This essay will explore the challenges which can occur for consultants employed by a staffing company while being placed at the same host company for a longer period of time. These challenges occur due to the fact that the Swedish Labour Law is not framed for the three party relationship between employer, consultant and host company which an employment at a staffing company creates. Hiring of personnel was legalized in Sweden on the first of January 1992. The reason for the change of legislation was a transformed labour market.

This essay will explore the challenges which can occur for consultants employed by a staffing company while being placed at the same host company for a longer period of time. These challenges occur due to the fact that the Swedish Labour Law is not framed for the three party relationship between employer, consultant and host company which an employment at a staffing company creates. Hiring of personnel was legalized in Sweden on the first of January 1992. The reason for the change of legislation was a transformed labour market. The employers were in need of hiring personnel for shorter job assignments without being forced to employ them at their own company. This essay will go through four areas of the Swedish Labour Law in relation to employment at a staffing company: health and safety, salary, co-determination, and job security. These four aspects will first be dealt with in the legal investigation found in chapter three. In the following chapter have consultants, union representatives, employer and the management at the host company been interviewed in regards to these four areas. The results show that the consultants do not have as beneficial conditions of employment as the personnel employed directly by the host company. Conducted interviews with the consultants show that they are rather employed directly by the host company than being employed by the staffing company. This essay comes to the conclusion that the Swedish Labour Law needs to be reformed due to the fact that today's labour market has undergone drastic changes since the seventies when the current Labour Law was passed.
