EU sources - Temporary work pays substantially less - December 31, 2015

Eurofound published a report that presents a broad picture of temporary employment across the EU27 between 2001 and 2012 and maps the recent evolution of temporary employment, before and after the economic crisis (based on Eurostat data). The report calculates the wage gap between temporary and permanent employees and analyses the wage gap within companies. The report also identifies the main determinants of temporary employment in terms of personal, company and job characteristics and examines the most relevant labour market transitions for temporary employees. The study finds evidence of segmentation in a number of European labour markets, whereby temporary employees have poor pay and labour market prospects, while permanent employees enjoy high levels of job security and opportunities for career progression.
