The statistics on labour leasing provide information on temporary or agency work in Austria. Key figures include the number of leased employees and assignments as well as the average duration of assignments in days. An assignment is a supply arrangement between a company with a business licence for the leasing of labour and the employing company.
The yearly average number of leased employees is presented by the federal province of the labour leasing firm and the employing company, by sectors and trade associations according to the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber and by the main activity of the employing company. The citizenship of the leased employees and the number of companies with active labour leasing activities are also illustrated. In addition, the results include information on the employment of workforce leased out to Austrian companies from EEA -countries.
