Description

Based on findings of the recently published Joseph Rowntree Report, this book provides an up-to-the-minute review of current research on flexibility, job insecurity and work intensification. It examines the impact of these developments on individuals, their families, the workplace and the long-term health of the British economy, as well as an analysis of the impact across a wide range of OECD countries including the United States, France, Germany, Sweden and Japan. Key questions addressed include:

* How are jobs more insecure?

* Does just-in-time labour mean more flexible contracts or more flexible workers?

* Does job insecurity entail a 'new flexible morality'?

* How does workplace stress affect individual health and family relationships?

Timely and thought-provoking, it is essential reading for all those involved in the fields of employment relations, HRM and the sociology of work.
