The regulation of temporary agency workers at the European level must tread a careful path between, on the one hand, efforts to enhance the employment protection of such workers whilst, on the other, the removal of legal restrictions imposed on their use. This is because any future employment legislation must correspond with the Lisbon agenda and, more specifically, with the European Employment Strategy's stated aim of'more and better jobs'. This article considers the distinct legal regimes that currently co-exist across Member States in respect of the sector Such variation is further exacerbated by the diversity which characterises the sector making it difficult to target specific legislation effectively at both the national and European levels.
