Core and Contingent Work in the European Union

A Comparative Analysis

Edited by: Edoardo Ales, Olaf Deinert, Jeff Kenner

Labour and social security law studies have addressed the topic of the decline of the standard employment relationship mainly from the point of view of the growing number of atypical relationships. Only a limited number of studies have examined the issue from the perspective of the differentiation between core and contingent work. Such an examination is necessary as the increase in contingent works leads to complicated legal questions, which vary between European states depending on the type of contingent arrangements that have become most prevalent. Using the comparation by prototype approach, this book analyzes these different types of contingency arrangements from a national and EU perspective, touching on the work relationship from a labor, as well as a social security, point of view. The aim of the book is to identify and analyze those questions adopting an innovative approach and to put forward proposals for safeguarding social cohesion within undertakings and European Society.
