An analysis of non-standard forms of employment in Belgium

This article reports on non-standard forms of employment in Belgium. The terms ”non-standard” – sometimes also called ”atypical” or ”unconventional” – refer to all forms of employment that differ from the traditional employment arrangement, i.e. a permanent contract for full-time salaried work.

There is a rising trend towards non-standard forms of employment in most industrialised countries. The OECD, the European Commission, the ILO and Eurofound have all shown that these forms of employment are associated with greater insecurity for the worker and / or linked to a lower degree of social protection.
