Young people at work and the rise of precarious employment

With workers aged 16-30 more likely to be employed on non-standard contracts and performing low-skilled, lower-paid jobs, they are at greater risk of missing out on the rights enshrined in national labour law frameworks and collective agreements. By bringing together academics, policymakers and practitioners to discuss research on precarious employment among young people, a series of seminars will aim to generate policy proposals, identify new research agendas and promote awareness of issues among research and policymaking communities.
