New Trade Union Strategies for New Forms of Employment

The present report explores a number of regulatory, normative, and conceptual dimensions pertaining to work performed in a self-employed capacity. The report was commissioned by the ETUC in 2017 following its call for legal expertise on the topic “New trade union strategies for new forms of employment”. In line with that call, the report explores a new legal conceptual framework for the analysis of the normative and regulatory challenges arising from the proliferation of ‘new forms of employment’, and in particular from the growth of forms of work that, by virtue of their being classified as autonomous or quasi-autonomous, fall outside the protective umbrella of labour and social security law.
