Résumé

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. Individual case studies are also available.

    Nouvelles formes d'emploi

    Authors: 
    Eurofound

    De nouvelles formes d'emploi apparaissent en Europe. Elles se distinguent des emplois standard ou non standard traditionnels de multiples façons. Certaines modifient la relation employeur-employé, d'autres l'organisation et le rythme du travail, voire l'ensemble de ces éléments. Ce projet a permis de recenser neuf formes d'emploi nouvelles ou émergentes depuis le début des années 2000 en Europe. Malgré leur diversité, elles accroissent toutes la flexibilité pour les employeurs ou les travailleurs, voire les deux. Certaines de ces formes de travail sont susceptibles de bénéficier tout autant aux employeurs qu’aux travailleurs, mais plusieurs d’entre elles risquent d'avoir des répercussions préoccupantes sur les conditions de travail et le marché de l'emploi. Ce rapport formule des recommandations politiques concernant la sensibilisation aux problèmes potentiels et l'établissement de filets de sécurité pour les travailleurs.
