ABSTRACT
The article discusses the results of the 2008 Labour Market Outlook conducted by the Chartered Institute of Personnel Development (CIPD). The research, which explored the implications of the European Union (EU) Agency Workers Directive, found that most of the employers felt that greater rights for agency workers may hit business and reduce its willingness to hire temporary workers. Mike Emmott, a CIPD adviser, stated that the directive will benefit agency workers who remain in employment but the net effect on jobs will be negative.
