Resumé

This report examines developments in non-standard employment over the last decade. It looks at trends in the main categories of non-standard employment – temporary, temporary agency and part-time work and self-employment – based mainly on data from the European Union Labour Force Survey. It discusses some aspects of the labour market situation of workers in these categories including wages and the extent to which they would prefer a standard employment status. The report includes a specific focus on work mediated by digital platforms, which is the most innovative of the new forms of employment that have emerged in the past decade. Digital platform work is thought to have considerable potential for growth but also to present challenges related to working conditions and social protection. Social protection issues surrounding other new forms of employment, as identified in earlier Eurofound research, are also highlighted. An executive summary is available - see Related content.

    Atypisk former for beskæftigelse – seneste tendenser og fremtidsudsigter

    Authors: 
    Eurofound

    Hovedfokus for denne rapport er væksten i atypisk beskæftigelse i løbet af det seneste årti. Den konkluderer, at der ud over deltidsbeskæftigelse ikke er sket en stigning i den atypiske beskæftigelse i løbet af denne periode. Både midlertidige ansættelsesaftaler og selvstændige erhvervsdrivende voksede imidlertid forholdsvis kraftigt i nogle medlemsstater i det lange økonomiske boom fra midten af 1990'erne og frem til begyndelsen af konjunkturnedgangen i 2007. Det er selvfølgelig først og fremmest i dårlige tider, at der er et udtalt behov for beskæftigelse og social beskyttelse.
