PARTTIME WORKING IN IRELAND

PARTTIME WORKING IN IRELAND The subject of parttime work is one which has become increasingly important in industrialised economies where it accounts for a substantial and growing proportion of total employment. It is estimated that in 1970, average annual hours worked per employee amounted to only 60 of those for 1870. Two major factors are attributed to explaining the underlying trend towards a reduction in working time a the increase in the number of voluntary parttime employees and b the decrease in average annual number of days worked per employee Kok and de Neubourg, 1986. The authors noted that the growth rate of parttime employment in many countries was greater than the corresponding rate of growth in fulltime employment. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Equal Opportunities International Emerald Publishing

Abstract

The subject of parttime work is one which has become increasingly important in industrialised economies where it accounts for a substantial and growing proportion of total employment. It is estimated that in 1970, average annual hours worked per employee amounted to only 60 of those for 1870. Two major factors are attributed to explaining the underlying trend towards a reduction in working time a the increase in the number of voluntary parttime employees and b the decrease in average annual number of days worked per employee Kok and de Neubourg, 1986. The authors noted that the growth rate of parttime employment in many countries was greater than the corresponding rate of growth in fulltime employment.
