The dissertation gives an analysis of common denominators of discrimination law, and of connections between discrimination law and subordination. Discrimination of part-time and fixed-term workers is compared to other types of discrimination. Furthermore, discrimination of part-time and fixed-term workers, as well as other legal instruments in the part-time and fixed-term work directives, is analysed in terms of employee subordination and freedom. The study also includes a discussion of the status of “work on demand” employment relationships according to Swedish labour law.

In addition to the analysis of labour law regulation, the dissertation provides a discussion of Swedish social security law in relation to part-time and fixed-term work. Entitlement to unemployment benefit, sickness benefit and parental allowance is examined. (Less)
