  • SUMMARY

    Non-standard work is a key issue in Korean society, but because the concept of non-standard work includes a wide variety of different types of work, the significance of the results of analysis on non-standard work may not be very clear. Problems sometimes arise when varied and heterogeneous types of work are tied into the single framework of non-standard work. This is perhaps the reason why discussions in Korea on non-standard work are often wearying and non-productive.
    Recognizing the limitations of such previous discussions, this study focuses solely on fixed-term contractual labor ? the largest and most central segment of non-standard work ? in its analysis of the labor market, and seeks to identify and uncover important facts that were previously not discovered. These new facts could then be a starting point for future discussions on the fixed-term contractual labor market.
    This study also engages in a comparative analysis of the fixed-term contractual labor markets in Korea and in the major countries in the world. It is extremely important to examine whether key characteristics of fixed-term contractual work in these major countries are also observed in the Korean market and to indentify characteristics of fixed-term contractual labor that are unique to Korea, for such analysis will enable new recommendations for a more efficient fixed-term contractual labor market in Korea.
