Furthermore, legal institute of temporary employment is often presented wrongfully and tendentiously by different actors and stakeholders. All this was a motive for the analysis of temporary employment, based on legal solutions of the Republic of Croatia. Croatia is good example of regulation of temporary employment, since it has been regulated in great details, enabling protection of employees’ rights as well as compliance with relevant international and EU documents.
