Özet

Although the EU aggregate change in the share of non-standard employment was limited between 2008 and 2018, these figures mask an increase in ‘compound’ non-standard employment which is difficult to capture statistically. It includes flexibilisation through working with no contract, casual such as zero-hours contracts, very low hours part-time work, limited duration temporary contracts and dependent self-employment. While the general employment trend has been towards higher skilled and better paid employment in knowledge-intensive service sectors, there has also been an increase in low quality, low paid, often service sector employment. This polarisation is illustrated by data that point to gaps in employment rights, social protection and representation among compound non-standard workers, as well as the in at risk of in-work poverty rates, and has prompted policy action seeking to address these gaps.
