Are all non-standard forms of employment precarious?
Franz Eiffe, Research Manager at 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?
