Product Overview

The international literature on non-standard employment has mostly focussed on its impact
on employment, and more recently on working and living conditions. This volume explores these issues with special reference to Italy. Italy is characterized by very low participation rates (particularly women s), a high degree of fragmentation of labour contracts and a very intense non-standard work diffusion that make this context a particularly interesting case for analysis. New elements of discussion are provided with reference to the interaction of non-standard work, employment probability and living conditions. Interesting insights on the impact of non-standard work on the transition to stable employment and workers careers emerge, suggesting a possible failure of companies internal systems of work evaluation. The effects on labour productivity and on companies performance are analysed. Within this framework, a new perspective on quality of work is suggested.
