Der Beitrag behandelt das Thema „Honoraraerzte“ nicht, wie bisher ueblich, aus aerztlicher Sicht, sondern erstmals in der Perspektive von Beschaeftigungsbeziehungen, insbesondere atypischer Beschaeftigungsverhaeltnisse (vor allem Befristung, Leiharbeit und Solo-Selbststaendigkeit). Nach der Einleitung und Problemstellung werden die wesentlichen Merkmale dieser neuen Beschaeftigungsform, die in den vergangenen Jahren deutlich zugenommen hat, in Abgrenzung zum Normalarbeitsverhaeltnis skizziert. Anschliessend erfolgt die Behandlung der soziodemographischen Merkmale. Darauf aufbauend wird die Frage diskutiert, ob Honoraraerzte als atypisch Beschaeftigte zugleich den haeufig mit diesen Beschaeftigungsverhaeltnissen verbundenen Prekaritaetsrisiken (in Bezug auf Einkommen, Beschaeftigungsstabilitaet und -faehigkeit, Integration in soziale Sicherungssysteme) ausgesetzt sind. Abschliessend geht der Beitrag auf die Vertretung kollektiver Interessen ein. (The paper considers locum doctors not, as usual, from a professional perspective but, for the first time with a focus on their employment relations, in particular their atypical employment forms (limited contracts, temporary employment, and solo-self employment). Following our introduction and problem definition, we characterise the essential features of these new employment forms, which have increased considerably in Germany in recent years, by comparing them with the normal employment pattern. Then we present social demographic characteristics of these forms. Next we discuss whether locum doctors who are atypically employed are also exposed to risks that are frequently linked to precariousness (income, employment stability, employability, integration in social security systems). Finally, we elaborate on the collective representation of their interests.)
