A committee for prevention and protection at work and a works council must be set up respectively in companies (in the sense of technical business unit) which usually employ on average at least 50 or 100 employees during a reference period.
Temporary agency workers put at the disposal of the (user) company are taken into account, according to certain procedures, when calculating the workforce.
The calculation of the average number of temporary agency workers put at the disposal of the (user) company is made out over the reference period from 1 April 2023 to 30 June 2023.
In concrete terms, the total number of calendar days during which each temporary agency worker (who is not replacing a permanent worker whose performance of the employment contract is suspended) was registered in the “register of temporary workers” (to be kept by the user company) during this reference period is divided by 92 (if a temporary worker's actual working hours are less than 3/4 of the hours he would have worked if he were employed full time, the total number of calendar days is divided by 2).
The user company must keep an appendix to the personnel register, i.e. a “register of temporary agency workers”, during the second quarter of the year 2023 (1 April 2023 to 30 June 2023).

An exemption from keeping this register is provided for when the works council finds, under certain conditions, that the threshold of 100 employees is exceeded.
