Atypical employment: an attempt at theoretical analysis

Atypical employment: an attempt at theoretical analysis

Journal of Economic Regulation, , Vol. 6 (no. 1),

The paper contains a theoretical analysis of atypical employment. It is demonstrated that the notion “atypical employment” is an umbrella term that includes different forms of cooperation between employer and employee. This analysis helps to form the list of criteria of differentiation between regular and atypical employment (this list includes economic, legal, organizational and social criteria). It is demonstrated that atypical employment may meet requirements of employees, employers and the state and this is why legal regulation and practical implementation of atypical employment should be very flexible.
