Dualisation of Part-Time Work

North and South American customers click here

This book brings together leading international authors from a number of fields to provide an up-to-date understanding of part-time work at national, sector, industry and workplace levels. The contributors critically examine part-time employment in different institutional settings across Europe, the USA, Australia and Korea. This analysis serves as a prism to investigate wider trends, particularly in female employment, including the continued increase in part-time work and processes that are increasingly creating dualisation and inequality between ‘good’ and ‘bad’ jobs.

“This rich collection, with contributions from leading scholars, broadens our understanding of part-time work in contemporary labour markets. The study of the politics of part-time work - at different levels and in a wide range of countries and its consequences for the quality of work and work-life balance - offers an invaluable contribution to scholars and students in the field.” Anne Lise Ellingsæter, University of Oslo

“This book provides a much-needed contemporary analysis of part-time work in an era of increasingly fragmented employment. It delivers new and important insights around the motivations for part-time work, job quality and regulation across different institutional contexts. Highly recommended.” Jim Arrowsmith, Massey Business School and University of Warwick
