The statistics on the employment of workforce leased out to Austria from EEA (European Economic Area) countries provide information on the hiring out of workers to Austria by companies based in a foreign EEA country. Key figures include the number of leased employees sent to Austria from EEA countries and assignments as well as the duration of assignments in days.
An assignment is a supply arrangement between a foreign personnel leasing company and the Austrian employing company. Absences (sickness, vacation, compensatory time etc.) or contractual changes (change of collective agreement, change in the working hours etc.) do not lead to the end of the assignment.
