Self-employment as a Non-Standard Form of Employment in the Czech Republic and in Poland

Anna Cierniak-Emerych , Eva Hamplova


The Modern companies, faced with high volatility and the associated unpredictab ility of their operating environment, often approach the challenge by changing the character of their relations with emp loyees. Flexib ilit y of emp loyment as a strategy of response based on non - standard or alternative models of employment has become an established standard in business practice. A good example of this new approach is self - emp loyment or disguised emp loyment. Observation of busi ness practice suggests that companies are more and more interested in maintaining a pool of contingent workers loosely associated with trad itional company structures and employed for specific tasks. In this context, the study presents an analytical evaluat ion of self - employment defined as a formal statement of contractual independence. The aim of this paper is to portray the character and the wealth of approaches in business perception of the self - emp loyment category, particularly in association with busine ss operation practices observed in the Czech Republic and in Poland. In addition, based on the results of a pilot empirical study, the study addresses a partial objective of examining the interest in this type of contractual emp loyment among persons enteri ng the job market.
