Workshop invitation: Temporary Agency Work in the EU political  
economies of austerity: a race to the bottom?  
<http://www.bath.ac.uk/ipr/events/news-0107.html>

*Date*: Friday 19 September, 2014

*Time*: 11.30 -- 17.00

*Venue*: 3 East 2.1, University of Bath, Claverton Down, Bath. BA2 7AY

*Abstract*: Is the expansion of temporary agency work and casual  
employment a 'race to the bottom' or a flexible springboard for  
economic growth? What kind of work and working conditions are  
experienced by people in temporary agency work? How do people actually  
find work -- and keep it -- in an environment of low economic growth,  
irregular migration and welfare cuts? These are critical questions for  
policy, politics and polity in the European Union.

In pursuit of informed answers to the above questions, this workshop  
discusses new empirical research evidence from an EU-funded project,  
on how regimes of temporary and casual employment operate over time,  
for people and businesses in different countries and economic sectors  
in the EU.

The workshop brings together policymakers, researchers and  
practitioners, to better understand the relationship of casual  
employment, political economy, and welfare in different EU countries,  
with a special focus on the UK.

*Speakers include*: Bridget Anderson (COMPAS, University of Oxford),  
Martin Couchman (Deputy Chief Executive, British Hospitality  
Association), David Camp (Director, Association of Labour Providers),  
Jan Cremers (Amsterdam Institute for Advanced Labour Studies), Anke  
Hassel (Hertie School of Governance), Bridget Henderson (Unite the  
Union), Isabella Biletta (Eurofound) and Paul Whitehouse (Former Head  
of UK's Gangmaster Licensing Authority)
