Green, Colin and Leeves, Gareth (2013) Job security, financial security and worker well-being:new evidence on the effects of flexible employment. Scottish Journal of Political Economy, 60 (2). pp. 121-138. ISSN 0036-9292Full text not available from this repository.
This paper uses panel data drawn from the Household, Income and Labour Dynamics in Australia (HILDA) survey to provide new evidence of the links between unemployment, wages, job security, financial security and workers' well-being for workers in flexible employment. Our findings indicate that workers in flexible employment encounter more unemployment and experience increased job insecurity; unemployment is associated with wage penalties. Lower wages, job insecurity and financial insecurity affect well-being. However, these negative outcomes are mitigated by longer job tenure. Our results have implications for moves towards a flexicurity model of employment
