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.

    Nuevas formas de empleo: Tendencias recientes y perspectivas

    Autor o autores: 
    Eurofound

    El principal aspecto abordado en el presente informe es el crecimiento de las nuevas formas de empleo en la última década. El informe concluye que, durante este tiempo, aparte del trabajo a tiempo parcial, no ha habido un aumento de nuevas formas de empleo. No obstante, tanto los contratos de duración determinada como el trabajo autónomo aumentaron de forma significativa en algunos Estados miembros, durante la prolongada expansión económica a mediados de la década de los 90 y hasta el inicio de la recesión en 2007. Es, por supuesto, principalmente en periodos de bajo crecimiento cuando se manifiesta la necesidad de empleo y de protección social.
