Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to examine the legal regulation regarding the psychosocial work environment for temporary agency workers. Furthermore, the aim of the study is to examine how temporary agency workers perceive their psychosocial work environment, and possible consequences of such perception. The methodology of the study consists of practical legal method and qualitative method in the form of interviews.

The results show that the psychosocial work environment for temporary agency workers is regulated at both the EU legal level by Directive as well as at national level in Arbetsmiljölagen and regulations issued by Arbetsmiljöverket. The study finds that health and safety responsibility for temporary agency workers is shared between the agency and the client company. The result of the study indicates that there are shortcomings in the introduction and training of temporary agency workers, which can contribute to an unsatisfactory work environment. Furthermore, the study shows that temporary agency workers have satisfying relationships with the manager of the client company that enables the temporary agency worker to obtain social support. However, there are shortcomings in the contact with the employer at the agency, which indicates that there is a lack of safety responsibilities from the agency. Overall temporary agency workers seem to enjoy their work, but groupings between temporary workers and permanent employees are present in some workplaces.
