Job and Organisational Level Aspects of Work in Slovenia

Abstract


Marginalised groups of workers in Slovenia are traditionally
most affected by labour market uncertainty, but increasingly
middle-class and upper-class workers are experiencing the
same. Furthermore, new work forms have given rise to
ethical, psychological and legal dilemmas. In this paper,
we examine the concept of decent work and focus on
job-related and organisational aspects of work in Slovenia.
In the empirical part of the paper we therefore focus on
working time, work organisation and co-operation within
teams, work-life balance, health and stress, and overall
satisfaction with working conditions. Our results evidence
that new work forms increase insecurity and consequently
diminish worker well-being; and this is most experienced
by younger, agency and self-employed workers in
Slovenia. This suggests that the development
of multilevel and multifaceted measures which take into
account socio-psychological and legislative factors to
address labour market segmentation is necessary,
especially when addressing the needs of those forced
to work atypically.
