Abstract [en]

This chapter provides a review of the literature on job insecurity, with the ambition to also point out urgent areas for future research. The focus is on the nature of job insecurity, factors that may lead to such perceive employment uncertainty, its potential consequences, and factors that may moderate the effects of job insecurity on its consequences. Conceptual as well as methodological issues affecting the understanding of job insecurity are addressed. First, job insecurity is defined as a subjectively experienced stressor, which may be divided into different dimensions. Second, predictors of job insecurity may include societal characteristics, work and organizational factors as well as individual characteristics. Third, the multiple aspects of job insecurity may have divergent consequences or at least be differentially related to potential outcomes such as work-related attitudes, job performance, physical health, mental well-being, and job-induced stress symptoms. Fourth, given that most studies on job insecurity have been cross-sectional, a lot of work remains before we know how, or if, insecurity contributes to changes in such outcomes. Fifth, there are a number of plausible factors that may moderate the relationships between job insecurity and its potential outcomes.
