Technological, economic, and social changes are challenging the traditional employer-employee relationship model, with significant impacts for workers and the social protection systems built on conventional employment models. Self-employment and the notion of a “portfolio of incomes” - already prevalent in low and middle-income countries - rather than just one, formal, full-time job for life, is increasingly becoming the “new normal” for many people in developed countries. This panel will consider how governments can reshape their governance frameworks to balance the benefits of increased flexibility in their workforces, while ensuring workers continue to enjoy social protections.
