Various forms of non-standard, atypical, alternative employment.
Additional notes and information
Irregular and/or precarious work is frequently associated with part-time employment, seasonal and casual work, self-employment, fixed-term work, temporary work, on-call work, home-based workers, and agency work.
Dimensions of such work may include, inter alia, uncertainty of continuing work, a lack of control over the labour process, low income and limited social and regulatory protection. The erosion of the standard employment relationship may render the employment of women more precarious.
