Resumé

Across Europe, new forms of employment are emerging that are different from traditional standard or non-standard employment in a number of ways. Some transform the relationship between employer and employee, some change work organisation and work patterns, and some do both. This report identifies nine forms of employment that are new or have become increasingly important in Europe since the year 2000. While there is wide diversity in terms of their characteristics and employment relationship, all the forms aim to increase flexibility for employers and/or employees. Although some have the potential to benefit employers and employees equally, in a few cases concerns have been raised about their impact on working conditions and the labour market. The report concludes with recommendations about the need to raise awareness of the potential problems and establish safety nets for workers. An executive summary and case studies are also available.

    Nye beskæftigelsesformer

    Authors: 
    Eurofound

    I hele Europa opstår der nye former for beskæftigelse, som adskiller sig fra traditionel standardbeskæftigelse eller atypisk beskæftigelse på en række forskellige måder. Nogle beskæftigelsesformer ændrer forholdet mellem arbejdsgiver og arbejdstager, nogle ændrer tilrettelæggelsen af arbejdet og arbejdsmønstre, mens andre gør begge dele. Dette projekt har identificeret ni former for beskæftigelse, som enten er nye, eller som har fået stadig større betydning i Europa siden 2000. Beskæftigelsesformerne er forskellige, men fælles for dem alle er, at fleksibiliteten for arbejdsgiverne eller arbejdstagerne, eller begge, øges. Nogle af dem kan have fordele for både arbejdsgivere og arbejdstagere, men der stilles spørgsmålstegn ved deres virkninger for arbejdsvilkårene og arbejdsmarkedet. Denne rapport kommer med politiske anbefalinger om at øge bevidstheden om de potentielle problemer og om at indføre sikkerhedsnet for arbejdstagere.
