Part-Time Work, Fixed-Term Contracts, and the Returns to Experience

Part-Time Work, Fixed-Term Contracts, and the Returns to Experience

The results from Panel A indicate a large and significant PT/FT hourly wage gap ranging between 6 and 8 percentage points. This gap can be interpreted as a quick drop in wages associated with PT work. Interestingly, this wage differential is almost as large for women working under a fixed-term contract than for those under a permanent contract, suggesting that, on average, having a permanent contract does not protect women against the negative wage effects of PT work. Likely reasons for wages growing less in PT jobs are that working in these jobs may involve less training, less possibilities to reach managerial positions and fewer chances to stand out by managing projects or doing extra work. Our econometric model allows for the possibility that the wage effect of PT under fixed-term contracts is not just the combination of PT under a permanent contract and FT under a fixed- term contract but that PT under a fixed-term contract involves its own - potentially different - wage effect. It turns out that the effect of PT under a fixed-term contract does not differ strongly from the effect of PT under a permanent contract, but differs a lot from the wage effect of FT under a fixed-term contract. If we compare the PT/FT wage differential within contract types, we find a higher PT/FT wage differential among fixed-term workers than among permanent workers, as found by Fernández-Kranz and Rodríguez-Planas (forthcoming).

The hidden costs of fixed term contracts: the impact on work accidents

The hidden costs of fixed term contracts: the impact on work accidents

The behaviour of the rest of covariates is as follows. The coefficients on the tenure distribution confirm that the accident probability is higher for people with short tenure and reaches a maximum for those between 6 months and 1 year of tenure. The results for the age distribution show that the age groups with more accidents are old workers (above 55) and those between 25 and 35. This may capture a number of effects like how careful these groups are at the workplace. Concerning gender differences, male workers have more accidents. Finally, the coefficient on the proportion of workers who did overtime hours, which was used as a measure of work intensity, is negative and significant. This is probably because the probability of having an accident for a low tenure worker is higher than that of an experienced worker even when the latter works overtime. In sectors that prefer to make their workers work extra hours instead of hiring new workers, the accident rate will be lower. Finally, branch and year dummies as well as a sector trend were included. 14

Fraudulent Contracting of Work: Abusing Fixed-Term Contracts (Belgium, Estonia and Spain)

Fraudulent Contracting of Work: Abusing Fixed-Term Contracts (Belgium, Estonia and Spain)

Problematic working conditions: In Estonia, various negative effects of temporary employment on working conditions were identified. Representatives from the Estonian Labour Inspectorate and the Estonian Trade Union Confederation (EAKL) pointed out a number of situations where employees on fixed-term contracts could plausibly experience unfavourable conditions. The temporary nature of these contracts could lead, first, to an absence of motivation for employers to invest in training, career development or protective equipment for these workers. Second, it could make employees feel insecure. As a result, surveillance and control of the workforce increase, with employees being pushed to work more intensively or to overwork to demonstrate their value to employers. Third, in certain cases, the temporary nature of the relationship could mean that an employee does not meet social security insurance criteria, given the duration of the contribution requested. For instance, the sickness benefits regime requires contributions over a contractual period longer than one month.

Fixed - term employment

Fixed - term employment

Young workers experience the greatest oscillations in terms of employment with regard to the economic situation, and women are often in this position because of the employers' views on the traditional roles of a mother and a woman ’s family status in general. Unions' researches in the Republic of Croatia have shown a staggering percent of surveyed workers who don ’t want to work temporarily, but have to because of a non-existent alternative. Also, temporary jobs in the Republic of Croatia are lagging behind permanent jobs in the Republic of Croatia when we talk about the agreed level of salary and other benefits. Through the introduction of flexicurity, the Danish Legislative Bodies have created a system of flexible employment which includes easier firing of workers, regardless of the duration status of their employment, but at the same time allocating large amounts of funds to improve the social and material living conditions of the unemployed. This leads to a lower level of poverty among the population and at the same time contributes to the creation of new jobs.

recognised that such an approach is unlikely to be affordable in the short to medium term given the current pressure on public spending. A more targeted approach is therefore required. One stakeholder reported that a number of community police officers have developed good relationships with drivers of modified cars (‘cruisers’) and have ensured that modifications to vehicles are within legal requirements. Another stakeholder suggested greater use of ‘Bluetooth’ technology to send road safety text messages to young people before they leave ‘high risk’ venues, e.g. pubs and clubs. The police are able to do this providing they are in close proximity to the venue in question. Some forces have used a similar approach to remind people not to drink and drive over the Christmas period.

CABAHUG_laborCases: Contract with fixed period/ fixed term Employment

CABAHUG_laborCases: Contract with fixed period/ fixed term Employment

Ponente: CRUZ, J.:p Facts: The petitioner is a truck driver who claims he was illegally dismissed by the private respondent, the Henry Lei Trucking Company. The Labor Arbiter found for him and ordered his reinstatement with back wages. On appeal, the decision was reversed by the National Labor Relations Commission, which held that the petitioner's employment had expired under a valid contract. The petitioner then came to us on certiorari under Rule 65 of the Rules of Court. The Solicitor General defended the public respondent and agreed that the contract between the petitioner and the private respondent was a binding agreement not contrary to law, morals or public policy. The petitioner's services could be legally terminated upon the expiration of the period agreed upon, which was only six months. The petitioner could therefore not complain that he had been illegally dismissed. As an examination of the claimed agreement was necessary to the resolution of this case, the Court required its production by the petitioner. But he could not comply because he said he had not been given a copy by the private respondent.

FIXED-TERM AND TEMPORARY CONTRACTS

Teachers employed on fixed-term and temporary contracts nevertheless have a range of statutory and contractual employment rights. National provisions on pay and conditions have for many years applied equally in most respects to teachers on fixed term and temporary contracts as to teachers on permanent contracts. The Fixed Term Employees (Prevention of Less Favourable Treatment) Regulations 2002 now provide that all employers must not treat fixed term or temporary employees less favourably than similar permanent employees with regard to pay, conditions of service and pensions and also place restrictions on the repeated use of fixed term contracts.

In keeping with the 1999 amendment to the Antiquities Act, President Obama welcomed the input and involvement of local: government officials, Native American tribes and recreational users in the construction and management of the Bears Ears National Monument. Obama created a commission (h ps://obamawhitehouse.archives.gov/the-press-office/2016/12/28/proclamation-establishment-bears- ears-national-monument) that would provide guidance and recommendations for how the monument should be managed. The commission was comprised of one officer from each of the Hopi Nation, Navajo Nation, Ute Mountain Ute Tribe, Ute Indian Tribe of the Uintah Ouray, and Zuni Tribe; each tribe would elect its officer. The Secretary of the Interior and the Secretary of Agriculture were directed to work closely with the commission to manage the land. Obama’s E/O was met with mixed reviews

NATIONAL ASSOCIATION FOR FIXED ANNUITIES

NATIONAL ASSOCIATION FOR FIXED ANNUITIES

FIPs, for example, like most insurance retirement products are designed for persons in a position to hold the products for a number of years. Accordingly, FIPs may not be suitable for persons, regardless of age, who could not be expected to keep their products for the long term, or are looking for a product that will produce a stream of income in the near future. This is because surrender in the short term could be subject to surrender charges and tax consequences that could decrease the dollar value of benefits otherwise available. However, many contracts mitigate the apparent disadvantage of pairing an owner’s short-time horizon with a long-term surrender charge by waiving charges on death or upon annuitization. Thus, while seniors as a class of investors are thought of as requiring a stream of income, any person, including seniors, may be purchasing the annuity for accumulation purposes and any individual senior may not have all of his or her assets tied up producing an income stream.

Fixed-term employment, work organization and job satisfaction: Evidence from German individual-level data

Fixed-term employment, work organization and job satisfaction: Evidence from German individual-level data

In contrast, another stream of literature emphasizes that in many European countries work intensity has increased in recent years (see e.g. Green, 2004). At the same time, the proportion of employees with work-related health problems has also increased. Moreover, in recent years there is a renaissance of occupational injuries in certain European countries as well as an increase in the number of cumulative trauma disorders (Askenazy and Caroli, 2006). The idea is that this upward trend in work-related health problems and occupational risks can at least partially be attributed to the introduction of organizational practices like job enrichment, job enlargement, quality management or working time flexibility. For example, quality management programmes usually do not only aim at improving quality, but also at reducing costs, which in turn may imperil the workers’ job security. Similarly, the decentralisation of decision-making may not only enhance the degree of worker autonomy, but also the mental strain and pressure exerted on particular workers. Moreover, job rotation or working time flexibility may also raise the pace and intensity of work, thereby disturbing people’s work life balance. Finally, organizational practices such as quality management, team work and quality circles are typically associated with the introduction of peer monitoring or peer evaluations, which in turn may be at the expense of internal working atmosphere (Askenazy and Caroli, 2006, Mohr and Zoghi, 2006). From this point of view, new organizational practices are therefore likely to deteriorate the workers’ job satisfaction.

Edward Snowden and the Privacy vs. National Security Debate

Edward Snowden and the Privacy vs. National Security Debate

However, McLeod and Shah note the tension between national security and civil liberties began far before 9/11, citing examples from the late 1700’s to today. Following the Patriot Act, longitudinal public opinions polls illustrated a decline in support for the invasion of privacy in the name of national security. After Snowden, Hasian, Lawson, and McFarlane explain the state redefined the term ‘whistleblower,’ in order to pass harsh laws preventing future whistleblowers from coming forward. Furthermore, Lockean political scientist William Scheuerman explains that, in enforcing the Espionage Act, President Obama has been more aggressive than his predecessors—highlighting a shift towards using more surveillance within the United States government, violating the balance of the social contract. 11 Altschuler also explores this trend, explaining, “Prior to the Obama administration, a total of three indictments had been brought under the 1917 Espionage Act against alleged leakers, including Ellsberg. In contrast, when Snowden was charged, it was the administration’s seventh such prosecution.” 12 Scheuerman analyzes this trend, explaining expanded surveillance is glossed over by the media, unless a whistleblower intervenes, because of the strong patriotic sentiments and culture of fear limiting criticism following 9/11.
