Abstract

This report: - Assesses the current employment conditions of part-time workers in comparison with those of comparable full-time workers across a range of countries. - Investigates the barriers to mutually agreed and freely chosen part-time work that meets the needs of both employers and workers. - Identifies those government policies and enterprise policies and practices regarding working hours and working-time arrangements, which appear to be likely to improve both access to, and the quality of, part-time work arrangements, while also advancing gender equality. - Reviews and analyses those government and enterprise policies, practices and overall conditions that may help workers to successfully transition between full- and part-time work.
