Le risque d'occuper un emploi de mauvaise qualité à la sortie du chômage




This paper focuses on jobs found by formerly unemployed people; it is based on the 2007 and 2009 « leaving unemployment » surveys. A review of recent studies about job quality shows the importance of multi-dimensional approaches. Yet few research works are concerned with job quality of formerly unemployed people. A coincident indicator of this « quality » has therefore been set; it is based on variables such as: term of contract, full- or part-time status, working time, and wages. Risks of short-term and badly paid jobs have also been explored. It appears that leaving unemployment leads massively to low quality jobs
