Focus on ‘very atypical work’

Those who do not work on standard, full-time, permanent employment contracts are less satisfied with their working conditions than their counterparts in standard employment, are less likely to receive training paid for by their employer and are more likely to perform monotonous tasks.
Two new publications from Eurofound address the complex issue of so-called ‘atypical work'. A comparative report, Flexible forms of work: ‘very atypical' contractual arrangements, highlights the increase in the use of work arrangements without a written contract, of part-time work of fewer than 10 hours a week and of contracts of less than six months. At the same time, a background paper, Very atypical work: Exploratory analysis of the fourth European Working Conditions Survey, complements the findings of the report with analysis of Eurofound's survey findings.
