Germany -Trade unions applaud court ruling on temporary workers -July 17, 2013

The federal labour court has ruled that it is illegal for companies to hire temporary workers for an indeterminate period of time. Trade unions applauded the ruling, saying the practice to hire cheap temporary workers instead of permanent staff while not setting an end date for the employment contract goes against the spirit of labour law. The unions stated that the court ruling will close a loophole and will make it more difficult to exploit the replacement of permanent staff by temporary workers.
