Abstract

Part-time work has for years been the most popular atypical employment in Europe. Against the background of social policy debates on reconciling work and family, gender equality and reduction of working hours, a further increase in part-time work is to be expected. But how is the quality of work in part-time employment? Under which circumstances are part-time employees satisfied with their working conditions? What are the differences between the countries under investigation? This work deals with these questions from empirical and country comparative perspectives. The theoretical basis is a multi-dimensional concept of working quality, which encompasses the aspects of working time, work-life balance, job security, income, autonomy and diversity in the job. By using this as an evaluative-relational concept (Hauff & Kirchner 2013). The focus is on an understanding of working quality as something that results from the interplay between the wishes of the employees and the actual working conditions.
