People Management;6/26/2008, Vol. 14 Issue 13, p34
The article offers information on the proposed European Union (EU) agency workers directive. With the initiative, agency workers would be entitled to the same basic pay as comparable permanent employees. The directive is likely to allow countries to exclude agency workers employed, and paid between assignments, by a staffing company. Workplace agreements about what agency workers should be paid will be allowed to override the legislation.
