Non-standard employment around the world

wcms_515331The ILO has just published the report “Non-standard employment around the world: Understanding challenges, shaping prospects”.

According to the study, non-standard forms of employment (NSFE) are often associated with greater decent work deficits. The report finds that there has been a rise in NSFE globally, including increases in temporary work, part-time work, temporary agency work and subcontracting, dependent self-employment and disguised employment relationships.

The report analyses the incidence and trends of NSFE globally and explores the reasons behind this phenomenon, including changes in the world of work brought about by globalization and social change, shifting organizational practices among companies, and changes and gaps in the regulation of work. It also includes a series of policy recommendations.
