The approval scheme requires staffing agencies to demonstrate compliance with the legal requirements for such operations in order to obtain approval. Approval will be a requirement for operating a leasing business. It will thus be prohibited to lease in/out labor from staffing agencies that are not approved. This represents a change from the current system, which only requires registration with the Labour Inspection Authority.
The Labour Inspection Authority will be responsible for approving the businesses, and the approval will be recorded in a register. The register will also indicate whether a staffing agency has a pending application for approval or has not obtained approval after such an application.
The purpose of the approval scheme is to find unscrupulous staffing agencies and make it easier to hire from reputable providers of labor.
