Samenvatting

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.

    Nieuwe vormen van werk

    Authors: 
    Eurofound

    In heel Europa ontstaan nieuwe vormen van werk die in een aantal opzichten verschillen van de traditionele reguliere of niet-reguliere vormen. Sommige veranderen de aard van de verhouding tussen werkgever en werknemer, andere veranderen de organisatie en de patronen van werk, en weer andere doen allebei. In dit project worden negen vormen van werk vastgesteld die sinds ongeveer het jaar 2000 nieuw zijn of aan belang hebben gewonnen in Europa. Deze uiteenlopende vormen hebben met elkaar gemeen dat ze de flexibiliteit vergroten voor werkgevers of werknemers of voor allebei. Enkele van deze nieuwe vormen van werk zijn in potentie evenzeer gunstig voor werkgevers als voor werknemers, maar verscheidene andere baren zorgen over hun gevolgen voor de arbeidsomstandigheden en de arbeidsmarkt. In dit verslag worden beleidsaanbevelingen gedaan over bewustmaking ten aanzien van de potentiële problemen en over het creëren van vangnetten voor werknemers.
