There is no official definition of non-standard forms of employment. Typically, the term encompasses work that falls out of the realm of the “standard employment relationship”, understood as work that is full time, indefinite, as well as part of a subordinate and bilateral employment relationship. It includes but is not limited to: temporary employment; part-time work; temporary agency work and other forms of employment involving multiple parties; and disguised employment relationships and dependent self-employment.
