Abstract: Starting from theoretical insights, this article discusses the forms and incidence of non-standard work in Croatia since the outbreak of the economic crisis. According to the definition of non-standard work, all employment contracts which are not full-time and open-ended with a single employer are taken into consideration in this analysis. This primarily encompasses fixed-term contracts, part-time work, temporary agency work and self-employment. Our core analysis is made through a focus on selected sectors, primarily in private ownership (construction, metal industry and retail), which have endured significant financial losses as well as reductions in workers in the post-2008 period. Additionally, public health care is also analysed as a representative of the public sector. Within these sectors, the strategic responses of the trade unions and employers towards the phenomenon of non-standard work will be particularly examined, as well as their implications for the further development of industrial relations in the country.
