Description:The aim of the project is to map the use of new forms of employment in the Czech Republic and to compare the results with those from other participating countries (Romania, Bulgaria, Croatia, Poland and Macedonia). The project is based on new forms of employment as defined by the European Foundation for the Improvement of Living and Working Conditions, i.e. employee sharing, job sharing, interim management, casual work, ICT-based mobile work, etc. Since virtually no statistics exist with respect to the monitoring of new forms of employment and the extent of their use, the project also includes its own field survey including the conducting of a focus group session with the participation of employees working in new forms of employment and 15 managed interviews with employers, recruitment agencies and experts involved with new forms of employment. The output consists of an analysis of the use of new forms of employment in the Czech Republic which will be followed by a comparative study of the results obtained in other participating countries. The project also included the compilation of a manual for employers and employees which will enable both sides to better understand the issue.
