2120 ABSTRACT Dissociation of work assignments and employment and bridging function of temporary agency work » According to information given by the interviewees in temporary agency work, consensual terminations are an important factor – and these consensual terminations aren’t always based on mutual consent. » This strong dominance of consensual terminations in the industry of temporary agency work can also be identified in the analysis of the data of regional health insurance providers and contribution controlling; thus, in 2012 – i.e. before the introduction of the termination fee – 45% of deregistration grounds were still defined as consensual termination. Since 2013, with the introduction of the termination fee, we observe a marked increase of terminations within the probation period (2016: 38%) – a trend we do not find in any of the compared industries. As a general rule, this ground for termination (30/34 – termination within probation period) should be monitored. » The often-cited bridging function of temporary agency work proves to be relatively rare: in 2016, the last year of observation, the percentage of transitions from temporary agency work into standard employment was only 21%. In addition, the importance of the bridging function decreases with increasing age (only 15% among over-50s). Work pressures and satisfaction » The characteristics of temporary agency work assignments (e.g. low levels of professional activity) and the structurally specific characteristics of temporary agency work (e.g. low continuity etc.) result in high work pressure and low work satisfaction. Thus, for example, roughly 36% of temporary agency workers think that leased staff are always assigned the worst jobs. 55% of temporary agency workers are exposed to work situations involving health risks. Nearly three quarters (73%) of temporary agency workers do not find opportunities for professional development.
