As of 1 October 2016, interimcontracts will have to be signed before the start of work. Under the old legislation, interimscontracts could still be signed two days after the start of work. This made abuse possible (for example: in some cases the interimworkforce had a work accident the first day of work due to which his/her employers did not want to sign the interim contract anymore). Now, such abuse is no longer possible. Moreover, the signing of the interimcontract can now be done electronically.
