Netherlands -Statistics on the use of temp jobs -June 05, 2013

The central office for statistics CBS published new figures on the use of temporary workers. In the 1st quarter of 2013, the amount of hours worked in stage A temp jobs was 3.2% down on the 4th quarter of 2012. Stage A is the category of workers engaged by temp agencies on a contract basis without regular terms of employment. In stage A, it is easier for both parties – temp job agencies and temp workers – to terminate the contract than in the subsequent stages B and C. The overall number of hours worked in temp jobs declined for the fourth consecutive quarter. The index (2010=100) for the number of hours worked in stage A reached 99.5 in the first quarter. The figures are adjusted for seasonal variation.
