EU sources -European Court of Justice rules restrictions on agency work illegal -March 18, 2015

European Court of Justice decided member states must remove unjustified restrictions on the use of temporary agency work.

In its first ruling in a case regarding the Directive on Temporary Agency Work, the European Court of Justice decided member states must remove unjustified restrictions on the use of temporary agency work. The court stated that restrictions are only permitted on grounds of general interest; namely the protection of temporary agency workers, the requirements of health and safety at work, or the need to ensure that the labour market functions properly and abuses are prevented. While the wider repercussions of the ruling remain unclear, employers’ organisation Eurociett has welcomed the ruling as a step towards a better functioning labour market; Eurociett president Muntz said the organisation expects a number of adjustments in laws and collective agreements to be set in motion by the court decision.
