Brückenfunktion der Leiharbeit: Zumindest ein schmaler Steg



"In order to analyze the stepping-stone effect of temporary agency employment for unemployed workers, we studied both employment histories of the longtime unemployed as well as those of temporary agency workers. Our results show that temporary agency employment increases the future probability of employment beyond the temporary sector. A comparison with unemployed persons who immediately found a job beyond the temporary help services sector reveals that no differences exist anymore after a period of two years.
Our results show that although temporary agency employment can facilitate the path into regular employment beyond this sector, this only applies to a few persons. It should be noted however that not many people manage to find employment without interim temporary employment." (Author's abstract, IAB-Doku) ((en))
