    Regulating the use of temporary contracts by enterprises

    09 March 2017

    The use of temporary employment allows enterprises to adjust their workforces to changing circumstances. However, an over-reliance on the use of temporary workers can lead to productivity challenges, both for individual firms and for the overall economy. Legislation governing the use of temporary contracts plays an important role in influencing firms’ decisions on how intensively to rely on temporary labour.

    02 November 2016

    An effective system of Employment Protection Legislation (EPL) must balance, among other things, the needs of workers for income and job security with employers’ need to adjust the workforce in an increasingly dynamic world of work. Indeed, rather than debating the benefits of more versus less EPL, more attention should be paid to the correct design of EPL, its interaction with other benefits, and its implementation and effective enforcement.
