Temporary work

Temporary work means a type of staffing where a staffing company hires workers and commercially assigns them to outside companies (deployment companies) for the purpose of performing work. In this regard, the employer (staffing company) assigns essential managerial authority over its workers to the deployment company. In contrast to other types of staffing (contract work, occasional assignment), the staffing company hires workers in connection with temporary work solely for the purpose of assigning them to deployment companies, without itself running its own production or services company.

Pursuant to the provisions of the Federal Act on Recruitment and the Hiring of Services (Bundesgesetz über die Arbeitsvermittlung und den Personalverleih, AVG), a permit is required in order to offer temporary work.
