    We investigate the impact of flexible forms of employment on working conditions in Tunisia. The dataset used comes from a unique survey covering 2000 workers in Tunisia and providing information on individual workers for the year 2004. Flexible forms of employment include job rotation, team work, fixed-term contract, part-time, flexible work hours, week-end work, night work, and over-time work. Working conditions are captured by occupational injuries as well as indicators of mental strain. We find that workers involved in the flexible work practices faces a higher risk of work injuries and more mental strain than workers involved in a more traditional work organization.
