Author(s): Elena Rostislavovna Schislyaeva, Olga Anatolievna Saychenko

The study aims to systematize the experience of the European Union in regulating the labor market against the background of the ubiquitous spread of digital technologies in the global economy. The purpose of the study is to analyze modern practices of labor market regulation across the European Union and the directions of their transformation under the influence of digitalization of the economy. As a result of the study, it was revealed that the European labor market in the last decade has been undergoing changes under the influence of the digitalization of the economy: the sectoral structure of employment is changing, the scale of part-time employment and distance employment is growing. Accordingly, current trends in supranational labor market regulation on the scale of the European Union are aimed at adapting regulatory practices to new forms of employment, as well as at developing human potential in the context of developing competencies among workers that will be in demand in the future.
