Case Studies

To improve the social security coverage of agency workers in France, a supplementary health insurance scheme has been implemented to cover medical costs and hospitalisation. This adds to the coverage already provided by the French state. The premium of the additional insurance is half covered by the employment agency. The insurance not only covers the worker, but also their family members. The fund is jointly managed by the trade unions and Prism'emploi, the French association of private employment agencies.
