The European Parliament has passed a first reading of the Better Protection for Temporary Workers Directive, mandating that temporary workers get the same rights and pay as permanent staff. The law will shift the problem of temporary worker contracts from the agency to the company using their services. Great Britain is opposing the scheme, claiming that such measures should only be implemented after the temporary worker has been with the same company for a minimum period.
