An Empirical Research on The Relationship Between Job Insecurity and Employee Health & Safety
AbstractThe purpose of this study is to investigate the relationship among the insecurity perception of employees, health symptoms and unsafe behaviours of employees. According to a limited number of empirical researches in this field, findings imply that job insecurity perceptions of employees may result both in physical and mental health symptoms and unsafe behaviours which may in return risk the job safety. Research is limited with an application to a large company in Turkey which is in downsizing process. Findings of this particular research have once again indicated both mental and physical health symptoms are related with job insecurity perceptions.
