Social & Labor Affairs Committee releases Position Statement “Zeitarbeit und Werkverträge”

Planned Regulations of Temporary Employment and Work Contracts

AmCham Germany’s Social and Labor Affairs Committee has published a position statement to express its concern with the planed regulation of temporary employment (Zeitarbeit) and work contracts (Werkverträge) proposed by a draft bill by the Federal Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs. The existing regulations are adequate and additional regulations would impose further bureaucratic burdens and costs. The proposed regulations would render these crucial instruments for businesses in Germany and thus the German economy almost inoperable.
