Summary/Abstract: The article aims to analyze the specific sources of precariousness: Undeclared work, False-independent activities, Atypical employment contracts, "Very atypical" employment contracts, Standard employment contract. The concept of precarious work could not be given an overview without referring to atypical working relationships, which implicitly have a precarious component. In this sense, for the analysis of the precarious elements within the atypical work reports, it is important to define this concept, starting from the definition of the standard/typical work relationship. These economic, political and social influences, which encompassed society, led to the emergence of atypical forms of work, as a consequence of labor market flexibility. Here that, in such an unstable and variable economic environment, the deviation from the standard employment contract appears to be imminent. Consequently, we intend to further analyze, starting from the definition of standard work, atypical employment contracts, as well as other non-standard activities (undeclared work and false self-employment), as activities that underlie the phenomenon of precarious work.
