Few people would deny that the world of work is changing. Gone are the days of a job for life with the promise of a gold watch and a pension after 40 years of faithful service. Today the employment market is volatile, fast moving and in a constant state of flux. The past 20 years have seen the emergence of many new forms of work (teleworking, co-working, crowdworking, job sharing etc.) and now up to 30 different types of labour contract are in use in many countries. Today, however, we are witnessing the emergence of a brand new phenomenon, with people resigning from secure employee positions to go-it-alone as independent workers.
