Casual work, both intermittent and on-call, contributes to labour market flexibility and is therefore increasingly used across Europe. In some countries, practices go beyond the use of casual employment contracts to include other types of contracts and forms of self-employment. While it offers some advantages for both employers and workers, it is often discussed by policymakers at EU and national levels due to the observed negative consequences it has for some workers. Impacts include economic insecurity and unpredictability of working time, which in turn affect workers’ health, well-being and social security. From a labour market perspective, casual work raises concerns about decent social inclusion of vulnerable groups, labour market segmentation and more general trends towards fragmentation of work and brain drain. Some policy responses have already been implemented to tackle these issues; further policy pointers are flagged in the report.

    Juhutöö: omadused ja mõju

    Author(s): 
    Eurofound

    Nii lühiajaline kui ka nõudel juhutöö aitab muuta tööturu paindlikumaks ja seetõttu kasutatakse seda kogu Euroopas üha enam. Mõnes riigis hõlmab see lisaks juhutöölepingutele ka muud liiki lepinguid ja füüsilisest isikust ettevõtjana tegutsemist. Kuigi juhutöö pakub eeliseid nii tööandjatele kui ka töötajatele, käsitletakse seda sageli nii ELi kui ka liikmesriikide tasandi poliitilistes aruteludes mõnele töötajarühmale kaasnevate negatiivsete tagajärgede tõttu. Juhutöö mõju hõlmab majanduslikku ebakindlust ja tööaja ettearvamatust, mis omakorda mõjutavad töötajate tervist, heaolu ja sotsiaalkindlustust. Tööturu seisukohast tekitab juhutöö probleeme seoses haavatavate rühmade inimväärse sotsiaalse kaasamisega, tööturu killustatusega ning töö killustatuse ja ajude äravoolu üldisemate suundumustega. Nende probleemide lahendamiseks on juba võetud teatud poliitikameetmeid; aruandes on esitatud täiendavad poliitikajuhised.
