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.

    Icke-standardiserade anställningsformer: Trender och framtidsutsikter

    Författare: 
    Eurofound

    Denna undersökning handlar i första hand om de icke-standardiserade sysselsättningsformer som har vuxit fram under de senaste tio åren. I undersökningen framgår att förutom deltidsarbete har icke-standardiserade sysselsättningsformer inte ökat under denna tid. Man kunde dock se en, i vissa medlemsstater relativt kraftig, ökning av tidsbegränsade anställningar och fler som arbetar som egenföretagare under den långa högkonjunkturen från mitten av 90-talet och fram till konjunkturnedgången 2007. Det är förstås främst i svåra tider som behovet av sysselsättning och socialt skydd blir tydligt.
