Arbeit auf Abruf und Arbeitsmarktdynamik in der Schweiz: Evaluation eines (weitgehend) nicht regulierten Beschäftigungsverhältnisses
Atypical employment contracts are either considered as traps that hinder permanent employment in the primary segment of the labour market or as stepping-stones leading to stable employment. Whereas the former interpretation appears to apply to Germany, our analysis of on-call contracts in the comparatively weakly regulated Swiss labour market, dynamics are high: mobility between working on-call jobs and permanent employment contracts is sizable, and no evidence of discriminatory wage practices can be observed. Furthermore, no significant differences in job-satisfaction levels between on-call and other employees exist. Nevertheless, some persistence phenomena can be observed on the Swiss labour market as well.
