Temporary Contracts, Precarious Employment, Employees' Fundamental Rights and EU Employment Law

Upon request by the PETI Committee, a report was prepared to assess the nature and extent of employment precariousness in the framework of EU fundamental rights and employment law.

The analysis focuses on two broad areas, namely atypical forms of employment and franchising.

The report identifies a number of ‘protective gaps’ at various levels of regulation and puts forward policy recommendations that are informed by the need to adopt holistic and comprehensive action for addressing what emerges as a constantly moving target.

The project was funded by the European Parliament, 2017.
