Flexicurity in Labour Contract and Work-Time Arrangements in Bulgaria and Risk Segments


  • Beleva, Iskra


The study analyses the trends in the development of flexible forms of work organization in Bulgaria since its transition to market economy. It concentrates on different forms of part time work and temporary contracts, as well as on the development of new forms as telework, home work, self-employment, etc. The analysis of the flexible contractual and working time arrangements shows that the process of introducing and promoting new forms of employment and working time patterns undergoes development through significant diversification of the existing regulatory frameworks and their practical implementation. However, the role of the flexible forms as a “buffers” related to labour mobility in and out the labour market is still insignificant. The study draws out a number of recommendations for the further development of flexible contractual relationships and working hours so as to improve the labour force utilization and capacity.
