Spain — Government wants temporary employment agencies to enter the permanent staffing sector

19 January 2010

The government has invited unions and employers to participate in a second round of negotiations on whether temporary employment agencies should in future be allowed to work on permanent staffing in line with other countries of the European Union, La Vanguardia reports.

The negotiations are due to re-start tomorrow after the first round broke up in July 2009.

On the agenda are also the rationalisation of permanent work contracts and self-employment, which the Spanish government is due to promote on a European Union level, as part of its current six month presidency.

The government equally wishes to discuss the concept of reduced working hours schemes based on the German model whereby participants undergo professional training during those hours which they don't have to work whilst on the scheme.
