The increase in temporary employment services is an international phenomenon, indicative of the needs of a rapidly changing global village, where industries expand and contract at increasing speed and modify their product offerings to match prevailing global demand. The use of labour brokers therefore forms part of a wider development, namely, the changing nature of work and, in particular, the shift away from what was historically considered the standard form of employment, namely, full-time employment of an indefinite duration, under the control of the employer and mostly at the employer's workplace.
