Sammanfattning

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. An executive summary and case studies are also available.

    Nya anställningsformer

    Authors: 
    Eurofound

    I hela Europa växer nya anställningsformer fram som på flera sätt skiljer sig från traditionella anställningsformer, däribland även de som inte var av standardtyp. En del av dessa nya anställningsformer förändrar förhållandet mellan arbetsgivare och anställd, andra ändrar arbetsorganisationen och arbetsmönstren, och en del får effekter i båda avseendena. I projektet har nio anställningsformer identifierats som är nya eller har fått ökad betydelse i Europa sedan omkring år 2000. De är visserligen olikartade men alla ökar flexibiliteten för arbetsgivare, för arbetstagare eller för bådadera. Några av dem har potential att vara fördelaktiga för både arbetsgivare och arbetstagare, men flera av dem väcker farhågor om effekterna för arbetsvillkoren och arbetsmarknaden. I rapporten ges politiska rekommendationer om att öka medvetenheten om potentiella problem och införa skyddsnät för arbetstagarna.
