Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Australia. Department of Education Employment and Workplace Relations 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: December 2011 Bibliography pp. 35-38 Appendix p. 39Summary: The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) projects that, between 2011 and 2020, the number of persons aged 50 and over in Australia will increase by more than 22 per cent. By 2050, the number aged 50 and over will have increased by over 80 per cent, or by 6.4 million. In comparison, the number of persons aged 18 to 49 is projected to grow by just over 35 per cent by 2050.

Non-standard employment and labour force participation : a comparative view of the recent development in Europe /

by Schmid, G nther | Institute for the Study of Labor.

Publisher: Bonn, Germany Institute for the Study of Labor 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Discussion Paper No. 5087 July 2010Summary: This paper presents, in a new way of examination and portrayal, the extent and changes of nonstandard employment relationships (part-time work, fixed-term contracts, and selfemployment) in 24 EU member states at two points of time, in 1998 and 2008, on the basis of the European Labour Force Survey. Apart from a detailed statistical description by gender, skills and branches, theoretical considerations explaining the development are also examined and tested in a preliminary way. Finally, the most important results and their challenges to the future labour market policy are emphasised again and discussed. The central outcome is neither the complaint of the eroding 'standard employment relationship' nor of its potential 'precariousness'; it is rather the requirement of increasing variability in employment relations due to rising employment participation of women (work-life-balance), mature aged workers, and persons with restricted work capacities. However, parallel to this development social risks are also spreading over the life course, especially the risk of great income volatility through multiple or long periods of unemployment, changing working times, obsolete skills or restricted work capacities due to ill health. In order to reduce or to avoid new social inequalities, future labour market reforms have to acknowledge this development by establishing new forms of social security or by constituting a more flexible standard employment relationship through adaptations in labour and social law. The contribution ends by providing some suggestions to such reforms.Availability: (1)
