Case C-681/18 (CJEU) - 14th October 2020

The Court of Justice of the EU (CJEU) has confirmed that in terms of EU Law, Member States need to ensure that recourse to a series of successive temporary agency contracts needs to be justified. This is because the assignment of a temporary agency worker is, by its very nature, intended to be temporary. Whilst the EU Directive does not expressly mandate an obligation on Member States to limit the duration of an assignment, or a limitation on successive assignments to the same user-undertaking, there is nonetheless an obligation on Member States to introduce measures in their national laws to circumvent abuse.
