The size of the non-standard workforce in industrialised countries has grown over the last four decades, as has social science research on this category of employment. This chapter first reviews the genealogy of the concept and explains the growth of the category. It then reviews research that has analysed non-standard employment, looking at specific practices and non-standard work in different sectors of the labour market. It concludes by reviewing policies that have been adopted in some countries to rectify the more deleterious aspects of non-standard work and suggests that such policies should be more widely adopted around the globe.
