"Employment precariousness" in a European cross-national perspective. A sociological review of thirty years of research /

by Barbier, Jean-Claude.

Publisher: Paris, France Universit de Paris. Centre d'Economie de la Sorbonne 2011Description: PDF, 38 p.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: "halshs-00654370, version 1 - 21 Dec 2011" Includes Bibliography p.35.Summary: From the paper: "What has been analysed in France mainly under the term ?pr carit de l?emploi? over the past 30 years was mostly dealt with differently in other countries (atypical, non-standard employment). Research on these issues dates back to the 1970s in sociology and institutional economics. More recently some political scientists have endeavoured to link up the labour market theme with developments in systems of social protection and they are talking about ?dualism? and ?dualization?. Despite the constant intellectual investment put into the topic, it is striking that indicators for comparative measurement of the phenomenon have remained rather unsophisticated, as the basic opposition between what Eurostat names ?temporary contracts? and ?open-ended contracts?. On the other hand, because of the spreading of the effects of work and employment flexibilisation into new countries, new categories are appearing since the early 2000s". ; This paper sociologically overviews, with a linguistic and semantic focus the meanings, social construction and usage of terms used in different countries and languages around concepts of precariousness, atypicality, non-standardness or marginality in employment.Availability: (1)

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)
