What does working through an agency mean?
Agency employment is a form of flexible employment where the worker is an employee of the agency but works in companies that need to cover the temporary need of employees. It is a relatively widespread way of employment in the world. In the Czech Republic, approximately 2.4% of the active population works in this way. Agency employment was typical for student brigades after the revolution. Later, it began to be used in manufacturing companies where production volumes often fluctuated.
What advantages/disadvantages can this bring to employees?
According to law, agency workers must have the same conditions as regualr employees in the same position.
They should not know any difference. The agency, as an employer, pays social and health insurance for its employees and the employment relationship with the agency is included in the pension. An agency employee pays nothing to the agency, nothing is deducted from his salary a he has exactly the same salary as regular employees in the same position. The agency’s services are paid for by the company that hires it to help with recruitment and employee care. It is an ideal start for school graduates or the unemployed who cannot find a job on a permanent basis. They gain work experince, thanks to which they can better find a permanent job.
