Numerical flexibility refers to employment contracts that allow the employer to increase or decrease an employee’s hours at short notice, and to terminate the employment contract at short notice and at a relatively low cost. Precarious employment relates to situations in which employees with numerically flexible contracts experience financial insecurity. Martin Olsthoorn investigates precarious employment and the way it relates to characteristics of jobs, employers and institutional environments.
