Resumen

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.

    Nuevas formas de empleo

    Authors: 
    Eurofound

    Las nuevas formas de empleo que están apareciendo en toda Europa se diferencian de los modelos tradicionales de empleo convencional o no convencional en varios aspectos. En algunas se transforma la relación entre empresario y empleado, en otras cambia la organización del trabajo y los modelos de trabajo, y en otras suceden ambos planteamientos. En este informe se identifican nueve formas de empleo que son nuevas o que han adquirido una importancia creciente desde 2000. Aunque son distintas entre sí, en todas aumenta la flexibilidad para las empresas, para los empleados o para ambas partes. Algunas de ellas tienen el potencial de beneficiar a las empresas y a los trabajadores por igual, pero otras suscitan preocupación por los efectos que tienen en las condiciones de trabajo y en el mercado laboral. El presente informe ofrece recomendaciones para la formulación de políticas relativas a la necesidad de elevar la sensibilización sobre los problemas potenciales que pueden plantearse, y de establecer redes de seguridad para los trabajadores.
