Informality and non-standard forms of employment

This paper provides a legal and a statistical overview of the concepts of informality and non-standard employment, and how the two concepts overlap in part. It also offers a comparative review of related trends, drivers and consequences in G20 countries, with attention to their gender dimensions. It presents some examples of policy measures adopted by G20 countries to address work deficits in informal and non-standard forms of employment and concludes with a few policy recommendations.
