Sumar

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. Individual case studies are also available.

    Formele noi de ocupare a forţei de muncă

    Authors: 
    Eurofound

    În întreaga Europă apar forme noi de ocupare a forţei de muncă diferite în mai multe privinţe de formele tradiţionale standard sau non-standard. Unele dintre acestea transformă relaţia dintre angajator şi angajat, altele modifică organizarea muncii şi tiparele de muncă, iar altele acţionează în ambele sensuri. Acest proiect a identificat nouă forme de ocupare a forţei de muncă noi şi de importanţă din ce în ce mai mare în Europa începând cu perioada din jurul anului 2000. Deşi sunt variate, toate sporesc flexibilitatea pentru angajatori sau angajaţi sau pentru ambele părţi. Câteva dintre acestea au potenţialul de a fi benefice în egală măsură pentru angajaţi şi angajatori, însă unele ridică probleme în ceea ce priveşte efectul lor asupra condiţiilor de muncă şi pieţei muncii. Acest raport formulează recomandări de politică privind creşterea gradului de conştientizare în legătură cu potenţialele probleme şi instituirea de mecanisme de siguranţă pentru lucrători.
