The industrial relations observatory EIRO has published a report looking at the extent of temporary agency work throughout the European Union and the extent to which it is regulated through legislation or collective agreements. The survey found that temporary agency workers were used in the public sector mainly in Denmark, the Netherlands, Norway and the UK.

Temporary worker agencies are covered by collective agreements in the Netherlands and Denmark.
