Flexible Employment:

a Path to Global Chaos or a New Model of Labor Markets Sustainability?

Flexible forms of employment are characterized by the growing diversity of opportunities for better utilization of people’s abilities. At the same time, social ties are weakening, individuals are increasingly facing isolation, insecurity and alienation. According to the ILO, this is a consequence of the informal economy, non–standard forms of work, short–term, transitional forms of employment, spatial and functional mobility of workers. Is flexible employment a path to global chaos or a new model for labor markets sustainability?
