Rethinking Employment Relationships

by Katie Davidman, Graham Lowe, Grant Schellenberg

Despite a growing base of evidence documenting changing labour market structures and work contexts, little is known about the diversity of employment relationships that are embedded in these work structures and the ways in which they are changing.  The goal of this discussion paper is to lay the conceptual groundwork for research on changing employment relationships and to stimulate discussions within and across the policy, academic and practitioner communities about appropriate responses to changes in employment relationships.
