Briefing: The differentiation between core and contingent work is an indicator for the decline of the standard employment relationship. The authors of the study “Core and Contingent Work in the European Union” examine different types of contingency from a national and EU perspective touching on the work relationship from a labour as well as a social security point of view. The increase in contingent work leads to complicated legal questions which arise between the Member States. It is the aim to identify and analyse those questions, taking into account typical forms of contingent work in the different Member States, and to put forward proposals for safeguarding social cohesion within undertakings and society.

A light lunch will be served from 12h00 in the room.
