The International Training Centre of the International Labour Organziation invites enrolments for an interregional course on Evolving Forms of Employment Relationships and Decent Work from May 27-31, 2019 in Turin, Italy.
Temporary employment, ambiguous and disguised employment, part-time and on-call work, multi-party employment relationships are work arrangements that deviate from “standard” forms of work. Women, young people and migrant workers under these new forms of work may find themselves at risk of disadvantage or discrimination.
- What defines a ‘decent’ work in the gig or platform economy?
- How to determine the existence of an employment relationship? What guidance does the ILO offer?
- What are the regulatory gaps in non standard employment?
These and many other questions will be raised during the interregional course on Evolving forms of employment relationships and decent work, to be conducted in the framework of the International Labour Standards (ILS) Academy in Turin.
Enrolment deadline: April 12, 2019
