Seminar – La Sapienza (Rome): Atypical Employment Contracts and Digital Economy

The world of work is undergoing profound changes at a time when the global economy is failing to generate sufficient jobs. These changes include, among others, the growth of forms of employment that are different from the models traditionally used.
So-called atypical forms of employment may serve specific purposes, such as seasonal work situations, but they can also be used to regulate new activities and forms of occupation that arise from the evolution of society in our time.
These atypical forms of employment include, among others, fixed-term contracts, temporary work, outsourcing, telecommuting, intermittent work, part-time work, among others.
