Project Approach

This project will describe the development of atypical work in Norway over the time-period 1995-2020, investigate the consequences of the developments for employers and employees and investigate possible driving forces behind the developments. We will also investigate the role of the developments in EU-law for Norwegian work contracts. Atypical work includes fixed contracts, temporary agency work and self-employment. Atypical work will be compared to permanent contract work.

The project has five subprojects. The first three subprojects are quantitative and will use register data, AKU and other relevant surveys. The two last subprojects uses a qualitative (4) and legal (5) approach to the same questions that we ask in the quantitative part.
