New forms of work

Source: ellagrin -

Alongside normal working conditions, there are many forms of atypical working conditions. These include clickworking and crowdworking where companies often recruit people on a needs basis via a virtual worldwide network. Employee sharing is also widespread. This is where a person is employed by multiple companies. Information about new forms of work as a result of digitalisation and the consequences for prevention can be found in the DGUV publication "New Forms of Work – New Forms of Prevention".
