AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

How do contract and contingent (temporary) work arrangements affect worker health?

More than 90% of all job growth in the US from 2005-2015 occurred in “alternative work arrangements” (e.g., part-time or contract work). This has provided flexible employment opportunities, but negative effects on health. AoU could look at how contract and contingent workers cope with job insecurity, lack of health and retirement benefits, and absence of job safety policies and training, and how these affect mental health, health behaviors, workplace injuries, and use of healthcare resources.
