New Legislation for Temporary Workers

"Labour Minister Peter Fonseca pointed out that temp agency workers often face barriers to attaining full employment. “Our approach would remove some of the barriers they may face, allowing them to seize opportunities if they should arise,” said Fonseca. One of these is the practice of “charging the client a ‘temporary to permanent’ fee after six months or more have passed since the employee was first assigned to the client,” he says."
