Abstract

In the current EU debate on labour market and employment policies, the concept of ‘flexicurity’ – the balance between the flexibility and security needs of employers and employees – has emerged as a central issue. This report puts forward four key indicators to be taken into account in the discussion on flexicurity: objective job insecurity, subjective job insecurity, employability and vulnerability. The analysis is based on findings from the fourth European Working Conditions Survey carried out across 31 countries, including the 27 EU Member States. An executive summary is available.

    Condições de trabalho na União Europeia: Segurança do emprego e empregabilidade - Resumo executivo

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    No seguimento do inquérito de 2005, a Eurofound realizou uma nova análise aprofundada das conclusões a que chegara sobre temas chave relacionados com as condições de trabalho na UE. Um dos temas analisados foi a segurança do emprego e a empregabilidade (flexigurança) e as suas implicações profundas para a sociedade e o mercado de trabalho em geral. A investigação utilizou quatro indicadores para analisar a flexigurança: insegurança objectiva do emprego, insegurança subjectiva do emprego, empregabilidade e vulnerabilidade. O presente folheto resume os principais desafios suscitados pela flexigurança e apresenta uma breve síntese dos principais resultados da investigação.
