While atypical employment contracts offer flexibility in the labour market, these kinds of contracts are inherently insecure and may generate stress among affected workers. This study examines the impact of atypical forms of employment on workers’ health. Survival analysis shows that, other things equal, the longer percent of time spent inflexible employment contracts increases the odds of falling into ill health for a variety of health conditions. The results are robust to controlling for the endogeneity in the relationship.
