The implementation of the Law on Agency Employment began on March 1, before the implementation of the state of emergency in Serbia, and in the first two weeks from the beginning of the implementation, a total of 8,562 workers were employed though agencies for temporary employment.

A half of them have been permanently employed, whereas the other half is temporarily employed, as shown by the data from the Central Register of Mandatory Social Insurance about the number of people employed through agencies for temporary employment, as they are registered there under a special code number.

The aim of this regulation was for workers employed this way to be provided with equal conditions as other employees.

This was previously not regulated in any way, so those employed through youth organizations would do temporary and occasional jobs.

They therefore had no right to many benefits arising from temporary and permanent employment contracts, such as sick leaves, or annual leaves.

The Law on Agency Employment came into effect on December 14, 2019, and is fully implemented since March 2020. At the moment, it's impossible to talk about the effects of this law, due to the state of emergency, which was implemented 15 days after the implementation of the law, the competent ministry told Tanjug.
