About this course

Non-standard employment includes a wide spectrum of employment e.g. marginal part-time, temporary employment and platform work. Non-standard employment is often associated with unfavourable aspects including income and job insecurity, vulnerability, lack of right and temporary contracts as well as poor work environment, which in turn may affect workers health.

This course will cover the current knowledge and possible interpretation of research on the area of non-standard employment and health.

Please note!

We will do our utmost to arrange courses, even in these exceptional times.  We have the readiness to arrange courses with modified concepts, allowing smaller groups to meet, in some cases national groups, and the possibility to participate on-line. 

Our cancellation policy is generous, so it is safe to enroll to a course well in advance and cancel participation if the situation makes it difficult or risky to travel.
