Project nr. 10173
Project leader Marte Strøm


The purpose of the project was to map, analyze and find effects of temporary employment, with a special focus on whether the new general access to employ temporary workers from July 1. 2015 has given better job opportunities for groups with a weak attachment to the labour market.

Project plan

We mapped the extent and analyze the effects of temporary employment for individuals.

Further, we investigated what characterizes firms who employ temporary workers and whether this has changed with the change in regulation.
