ABSTRACT
The article analyzes the temporary agency workers directive to be enacted as a law in Great Britain. The directive centers on making agency workers' employment conditions at least equal to those of the end-user's employees. The Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform (BERR) noted that the directive will not touch the employment status of temporary workers. It is suggested that the legislation implementing the directive must define equal treatment in working and employment conditions and the workers' rights such as right to training.
