REVIEW OF MEASUREMENT OF TEMPORARY WORK
With the increase in part-time, casual and fixed-term or 'temporary' work over recent decades, there has been an increased interest in understanding the nature and extent of 'non-traditional' working arrangements, including temporary work. Currently, the ABS does not have an official measure of 'temporary employees' and is investigating options for a definition that would support the development of a robust indicator of temporary work.
The project will seek to define temporary work, relate international discussion of temporary work to the Australian context and provide recommendations for characteristics that could be used to compile a temporary work indicator.
