Gender and Working Time: An Analysis of Employers' Working-Time Policies
AbstractInformation from interviews with manufacturing, private service and public service establishments is used to consider how working-time requirements are determined and the relationship between these requirements and occupational segregation by gender. Both men and women are found to be involved in all types of working-time regime and unsocial hours working. Therefore, in principle, working-time requirements do not provide a barrier to occupational desegregation. However there are sectoral differences in the type of working-time regime adopted and firms adjust their organization of working hours to meet their needs taking into account the customary gender composition of their workforce. Further introduction of extended and flexible working hours is likely to intensify the sectorally gendered patterns of working time. Copyright 1991 by Oxford University Press.
