Are all non-standard forms of employment precarious?
Franz Eiffe, Eurofound

Anna Gallinat, communication project officer at Eurofound, interviews Franz Eiffe, research manager at Eurofound, to explore whether all non-standard forms of employment are precarious. Non-standard forms are more common in lower income groups, and the workers more exposed are those on fixed-term contracts, solo self-employed, and involuntary part-time workers. Furthermore, how is Covid-19 been affecting all these issues, especially in terms of gender equality?

EU directives on precarious work: what are the loopholes?
Sophie Robin-Olivier, University Paris 1 – Panthéon Sorbonne

Prof of European Union law at University Paris 1 – Panthéon Sorbonne, Sophie Robin-Olivier, hosts this webinar within the project “Precarious work: empowering trade unions to address new challenges”. Precarious work is not a new phenomenon, but recent evolutions such as digitalisation, gig economy and flexibilisation of work have been posing new challenges. To this end, the current EU directives in place, notably Directive 97/81/EC on part time work, Directive 1999/70/EC on fixed-term work and Directive 2008/104/EC on temporary agency work, are becoming more and more dated.
