The article is devoted to the formulation and systematization of the principles of functioning of the institution of self-employment as a specific institutional socio-economic system. The improvement of the existing approach to the dichotomy of the institution of self-employment into formal and informal institutional components due to the identification
of semi-formal institutional formations in the field of self-employment is substantiated. Semi-formal institutional formations mean informal institutions in the field of self-
-employment, which have certain features of formal ones, and are formed in response to the functional insufficiency of formal institutions of self-employment, in particular, web portals and online freelance exchanges. The principles of functioning of formal, informal and semi-formal components of the self-employment institution are formulated, common features and differences in forming systems of principles of different components of the self--employment institute are determined, which can become the basis for resolving contradictions that arise in the field of self-employment between informal and formal institutions in Ukraine.
