The Temporary Employment Act (AÜG) is a law of 07.08.1972 which regulates the commercial leasing of employees. According to the Temporary Employment Act (AÜG), the rental company needs an official permit from the Federal Employment Agency.
Originally it only served the social protection of temporary workers, but now the legislature is also pursuing labor market policy goals with the Temporary Employment Act (AÜG). To this end, the Temporary Employment Act (AÜG) was changed in essential points by the first law for modern services on the labor market ("Hartz I"): The special ban on time limits, the ban on synchronization, the ban on reinstatement and the limitation of the leasing period to a maximum of 2 years have been repealed. The law came into force on 01/01/2004.
