Abstract: Considering the evolution of atypical employment forms and their diversity, the elements of novelty brought about by atypical employment forms lie not only in their proliferation at an extremely fast pace, in most EU member states, but also in the fact that the non-standard employment forms known so far have been joined by very many new versions and subcategories, which allows a sub-categorization of these forms as atypical and very atypical. Currently, these new types of employment are no longer marginally used on the European labor markets, as their number has increased very strongly, the trend becoming a true phenomenon. As an exhaustive presentation of these works arrangements is beyond the scope of the present paper, we shall hereby address mainly the on call employment contract, in order to highlight its benefits for the labor market, as well as the major negative implications of implementing it. This is a relevant pursuit, since the Romanian labor legislation has not yet issued any stipulations to regulate this new type of work arrangement.
