Abstract

The finding is that by creating the right business environment for temporary employment and temporary work agencies, relatively successful economies reduce the supply and demand of undeclared work by providing both workers and employers with better alternatives. The debate, therefore, should be less about whether to allow flexible labour and temporary work, and more about how flexible labour and temporary work can be regulated to create a win-win situation for both businesses and workers.

Keywords: informal sector; informal economy; undeclared economy; labor economics; public policy; labour economics; temporary work
