Non-standard employment and, more particularly, part-time work has been increasing worldwide for the past two decades. This trend has been especially strong in Europe, where the issue of different working time arrangements is an important part of the discussion among policymakers and social partners, and something which the European Union (EU) has promoted to increase flexibility for workers and employers. However, part-time work is spread very unevenly across Member States, reflecting differences in legislation, infrastructure and cultural conventions. This report uses data from the fourth European Working Conditions Survey and the second Company Survey.

    Xogħol part-time fl-Ewropa - Sommarju Eżekuttiv

    Author(s): 
    Eurofound
    L-impjieg part-time ilu jiżdied fl-Ewropa għal dawn l-aħħar żewġ deċenni. Dan japplika b’mod partikolari għal pajjiżi fejn arranġamenti differenti tal-ħinijiet tax-xogħol ġew diskussi fost dawk li jfasslu l-politika u l-imsieħba soċjali bħala mezz biex tiżdied il-flessibilità. Ix-xogħol part-time, fis-sens wiesa’ tal-kelma, jista’ jkollu effetti kemm pożittivi kif ukoll negattivi għall-ħaddiema u għal min iħaddem. Dan ir-rapport jipprova jgħaqqad flimkien ir-riżultati ta’ żewġ servejs li saru madwar l-Ewropa biex jipprovdi stampa tax-xogħol part-time – billi jippreżenta l-perspettiva kemm tal-kumpanija kif ukoll tal-impjegat.
