This report examines developments in non-standard employment over the last decade. It looks at trends in the main categories of non-standard employment – temporary, temporary agency and part-time work and self-employment – based mainly on data from the European Union Labour Force Survey. It discusses some aspects of the labour market situation of workers in these categories including wages and the extent to which they would prefer a standard employment status. The report includes a specific focus on work mediated by digital platforms, which is the most innovative of the new forms of employment that have emerged in the past decade. Digital platform work is thought to have considerable potential for growth but also to present challenges related to working conditions and social protection. Social protection issues surrounding other new forms of employment, as identified in earlier Eurofound research, are also highlighted.

    Forme atipice de ocupare a forței de muncă: tendințe recente și perspective de viitor

    Authors: 
    Eurofound

    Principalul punct de interes al acestei lucrări este răspândirea formelor atipice de ocupare a forței de muncă pe parcursul ultimului deceniu. Se constată că, în afară de munca cu fracțiune de normă, în această perioadă nu a existat o creștere a formelor de ocupare atipice. În schimb, atât contractele temporare, cât și activitățile independente au înregistrat o creștere, destul de puternică în unele state membre, în lunga perioadă de expansiune economică cuprinsă între mijlocul anilor 1990 și începutul recesiunii din 2007. Desigur, necesitatea de a avea un loc de muncă și de a beneficia de protecție socială devine evidentă în principal în vremuri de restriște.
