Labour market regulation is undeniably one of the key factors affecting the dynamically evolving phenomenon of precarious work in Europe. Yet, in the EU labour law architecture, 'precarious work' does not stand as an autonomous legal concept and the references to precariousness in both the European Union legislation and in the case law of the Court of Justice are still rather rare. The chapter provides an overview of the underlying causes of the development of the precarious work phenomenon in Europe and analyses the policy and judicatory answers to it at EU level. It also discusses the perspectives for and potential trajectories of the development of an adequate institutional framework against precarity at the EU level.

Precarious Work

The Challenge for Labour Law in Europe

Edited by Jeff Kenner, Izabela Florczak and Marta Otto

This discerning book provides a wide-ranging comparative analysis of the legal and social policy challenges posed by the spread of different forms of precarious work in Europe, with various social models in force and a growing ‘gig economy’ workforce. It not only considers the theoretical foundations of the concept of precarious work, but also offers invaluable insight into the potential methods of addressing this phenomenon through labour regulation and case law at EU and national level.
