Abstract

Aims to subject to empirical scrutiny the claim that peripheral work is characterized by a range of undesirable characteristics. The analysis of data from the Australian Workplace Industrial Relations Survey (AWIRS) clearly shows that there is a link between peripheral forms of employment and undesirable working conditions in Australian workplaces. Further, the negative features of peripheral employment apply regardless of workplace size, sector or industry. In conjunction with the evidence of the growth of a peripheral workforce and the marked over‐representation of women in such jobs, supports the argument that peripheral work contributes to inequality in Australian workplaces.
