The Employment Landscape in Germany
Germany is generally seen as one of the best places in the world to work. As well as having a diverse and powerful economy, German regulations regarding worker protection are recognised as quite strong. People working in Germany are protected by strong employment laws in areas such as equality rights, health and safety at work, holiday entitlements and so forth. With all of this in mind, it is no wonder that Germany has proven so popular for inward migration when it comes to attracting working people.
The temporary agency worker sector is quite a small sector within the German workforce. It accounts for roughly 3% of the total German workforce and it is quite popular to use temporary workers in manufacturing, agricultural jobs, logistics and cleaning jobs. For some workers this arrangement is quite suitable, especially for new people in Germany who have arrived without a concrete job proposal or those who are starting back into the workforce after an absence. Even more so if a person does not yet have confidence in their German language abilities. Therefore, it is important that this area is regulated efficiently.
