The social protection system faces challenges to provide full and effective coverage for workers
in all forms of employment, including those in „new” forms of employment like part-time
work, temporary work, fixed-term work, casual and seasonal work, self-employed people,
independent workers, and homeworkers. Although the number of workers in non-standard
employment has grown significantly over the past two decades, these workers continue to be
regarded as being in „atypical“ employment. The big challenge for social protection is to keep
up with the pace of change. For social security systems, the effects of „new“ forms of
employment threaten the financial sustainability of contributory programs. It also creates the
need to extend legal coverage to new categories of workers. This paper aims to see the
challenges for the traditional financing of the social protection program of workers engaged in
„atypical“ forms of works who often face social protection gaps.
Applying the comparative-legal method will enable us to see the positive-legal solutions that
exist in the social security systems of the EU Member States, as well as whose solutions and
experiences our country should follow. To discover the content of the norms dedicated to the
social insurance of non-standard workers, the paper will use the dogmatic method and
sociological method. For the analysis, the decryption method will also be used.
Keywords: labor markets, non-standard employment, social protection gaps, work.
