EU sources -ECJ rules fixed term workers directive does not apply to agency workers -May 17, 2013

In the case Della Rocca v Poste Italiane SpA, the European Court of Justice ruled that temporary agency workers are not protected by the Fixed Term Work Directive. Della Rocca, an agency worker who was placed at the Italian Postal Service, took his employer to court claiming that the series of fixed term contracts he had received entitled him to an open ended contract. The ECJ rules that agency workers do not fall within the scope of the directive and neither the agency, nor the end-user is bound by it.
