Deregulation, digitalization and globalisation have given rise to the emergence of more diversified flexible work arrangements and of a rising share of vulnerable workers. The trend towards more flexible work relationships (such as short-term, on-call employment, temporary agency work, solo self-employment or platform work) frequently leads to precarious work. This is characterized by increasing insecurity and unpredictability. Flexible work may also increase the autonomy of workers, lower labour costs for employers, and give more work opportunities for young workers, and the unemployed and disabled workers.
