Rental worker

You can employ yourself as an agency worker through a labour hire company.

There are three parties to the rental employment relationship: the employee, the labour hire company and the user company. A company that needs employees may sign a contract with a labour hire company for the hiring of employees. You enter into an employment contract with the labour hire company, meaning that this company is your employer and it pays your salary. You work at the workplace of the user company, and it is responsible for providing work instructions and guidance. As an agency worker, you may be employed by several different user companies at the same time.

As a rule, the same labour legislation applies to agency work as to other employment relationships, but certain provisions specific to agency work are found in the Employment Contracts Act.
