Spain — Association asks government to get rid of red tape for temporary employment agencies

27 April 2010

The Association of Temporary Employment Agencies (Fedett), has expressed the opinion that temporary employment agencies should be allowed to work on recruitment, selection, outplacement and consulting without any cost to the worker. Fedett also wants temporary employment agencies to be able to work for the government's job centres, Europa Press reports.

Fedett President, Luis Miguel Carmona, said "if we want to create more and better jobs and drastically reduce the current unemployment figures it would be a good idea to make the experience [of temporary employment agencies] accessible to the government's job centres. That way we could avoid the situation we have currently where one in ten households does not have a single person in work."

The Association makes it clear that it does not wish to privatise the government's job centres but merely wishes to work together with them.

Fedett points out that this model already works in countries like France (see article above), Italy and Austria where unemployment is far lower than it currently is in Spain.

The Association also highlights the fact that temporary employment agencies place more candidates in jobs than the job centres in 16 out of 17 Spanish regions.

Fedett demands further that the government put an end to the exclusion of temporary employment agencies from 'sectors of risk' (construction industry, etc) and public administration.

Note: Fedett should not be confused with the Association of Large Temporary Employment Agencies (Agett).
