    Abstract

    We examine the extent of employment security faced by different occupational groups within the unorganized sector and analyse the factors influencing the same. Based on a large sample including agricultural, contruction and domestic workers in four districts in Karnataka, we find that the inter and intra-sectoral heterogeneity among these occupational groups have implications for the policies aiming at ensuring their employment security. A one-size-fits-all policy for the entire unorganized sector would be inadequate because it would fail to consider these differences and would not address the sector-specific needs of the workers.
