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

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


This study, commissioned by the the European Parliament’s Policy Department for
Citizens’ Rights and Constitutional Affairs at the request of the Committee on
Petitions, 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.
