Annamaria Westregård, Lund University
Valentina Franca, University of Ljubljana

The aim of the presentation is to analyse the consequences of the legal system for different forms of precarious workers, with a focus on employment protection, social security and the work environment and how the legal regulations in labour law and social security law can adapt to the new forms of employment. The impact of the Swedish attempt to improve conditions for precarious workers will be analysed.

In addition, the presentation will analyse i) the challenges precarious work has brought to the Slovenian labour market; ii) the influences it has on the collective employment relations iii) legislative solutions and other measures intended to prevent the abuse of atypical forms of work and iv) possible legal solutions that will provide collective rights to employees in all forms of dependent work.
