Keine andere Branche konnte in den letzten Jahren eine derart starke Expansionsdynamik verzeichnen wie jene der Leiharbeit bzw. Arbeitskräfteüberlassung. Vorliegende Studie stellt eine empirische Untersuchung zur Entwicklung der Arbeitskräfteüberlassung im Zeitverlauf sowie zum Status Quo der Arbeitssituation der beschäftigten Personen dar. Geprüft wird, inwieweit LeiharbeiterInnen noch immer ArbeitnehmerInnen zweiter Klasse sind bzw. ob der Gap zwischen Kern- und Randbelegschaften mittlerweile verkleinert werden konnte. Zusätzlich kommen LeiharbeiterInnen im Rahmen einer repräsentativen Befragung selbst zu Wort.

Regarding the genesis of temporary agency work in Austria, the first major milestone to be emphasized is the enactment of the Temporary Agency Work Act (Arbeitskräfteüberlassungsgesetz, AÜG) in 1988, which aimed to protect leased workers. Years of negotiation between the social partners finally resulted in the signing of a collective agreement for the temporary agency work industry in 2002, which in particular regulated the issues of remuneration claims and continued remuneration in lease-free periods, and reduced legal uncertainties for both employees and employers.
