Summary/Abstract: Employees working in the atypical employment forms are regular targets of various unfair proceedings by their employer or workmates (e.g. sexual harassment, discrimination). In addition they meet with negative consequences of those forms of employment on their own work or private life (low earnings, the impossibility of saving for retirement). The movie Bridget Jones‘s Diary is an obvious example of the current conditions of the labour market. Bridget Jones‘s desperate effort to find happiness in the world today demonstrates the ambivalent character of labour law, which seeks to strike a balance between the protection of private and family life and the work performance in the employer’s interest.
