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.

Chapter 7: From student work to false self-employment: how to combat precarious work in Slovenia?

Darja Senčur Peček and Valentina Franca


Various forms of work are legally regulated in Slovenia. In addition to the prevailing typical employment contract, there is also a variety of nonstandard forms of work that are allowed under certain conditions and within legal restrictions. In practice, these atypical forms of work are also used in cases that do not meet the requirements for such work and outside of legal restrictions, which is why employment contracts are being replaced with other forms of work. Concurrently, all these changes have a considerable impact on collective employment relationships. The scope of this contribution is to present and analyse the challenges which precarious work has brought to the Slovenian labour market; its influences on collective employment relations; legislative solutions and other measures intended to prevent the abuse of atypical forms of work; and possible legal solutions that will provide collective rights to employees in all forms of dependent work.
