O’Grady said: “Swedish derogation contracts are just one more example of a new and growing type of employment that offers no job security, poor career progression and often low pay.”
Hmm. So what actually is this Swedish derogation?
The TUC has become increasingly frustrated about the growing use of the loophole known as the Swedish derogation, which allows agency workers placed with companies to be paid less than direct employees, provided the agency agrees to continue paying them for at least four weeks at times when it is unable to find them work.
So, greater security of pay is now evidence of less security of pay is it?
