Glossary of Terms: European Platform Tackling Undeclared Work
(2018)
  • Colin C Williams
Abstract
This glossary is intended to provide a common understanding of the terminology that is used in the European Platform tackling undeclared work web pages, documents and publications. It does not provide official Platform definitions of the terms listed therein. Where possible, references are provided to the source of the understandings provided.
To facilitate understanding, the terms in the glossary are grouped together rather than presented as an A-Z list.

In the first section, the common understandings about undeclared work and its various sub-types are provided, followed by other related concepts and terms often used for activities related to undeclared work.

In the second section, common understandings are provided of the terminology related to policy approaches and measures used when tackling undeclared work at the national-level.
The third section provides common understandings of the terminology related to policy approaches and measures used when tackling undeclared work at the cross-border level.
The fourth and final section then provides common understandings of institutional-related terminology associated with tackling undeclared work.

Many bodies involved in tackling undeclared work have wider remits than solely transforming undeclared work into declared work, such as dealing with modern slavery, forced labour and human trafficking. They also often have a mandate to tackle work performed by non-documented workers. However, given that the mandate of the Platform is to tackle undeclared work, this glossary confines itself solely to terms related to this mandate as defined in decision EU/2016/344.

This glossary is a living entity. It is not a completed and final work. The intention is to continuously update the terms included and the common understandings, as new concepts emerge and evolve over time.
