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.

    O trabalho a tempo parcial na União Europeia - Resumo executivo

    Autor(es): 
    Eurofound
    O emprego a tempo parcial tem vindo a aumentar na Europa, nas duas últimas décadas. Esta evolução é particularmente visível nos países onde as diferentes formas de organização do tempo de trabalho têm sido objecto de debate entre os decisores políticos e os parceiros sociais, com o intuito de aumentar a flexibilidade. O trabalho a tempo parcial, em sentido lato, tanto pode ter efeitos positivos como negativos para os trabalhadores e para as entidades patronais. O presente relatório procura reunir os resultados de dois inquéritos realizados a nível europeu, de modo a fornecer uma breve panorâmica do trabalho a tempo parcial – tanto do ponto de vista das empresas como do ponto de vista dos trabalhadores.
