Temp and Part-Time workers more likely to develop work-related health problemsDaniel Lublin | Tuesday, September 30th, 2008 | Comments Off on Temp and Part-Time workers more likely to develop work-related health problems
Toronto’s Centre for Addiction and Mental Health has recently released findings from a study that indicate temporary and part-time employees are more susceptible to develop physical and mental work-related health problems than their full-time counterparts.
In a recent column, Cynthia Ross Cravit addresses the study as well as the World Health Organization‘s recent commission on social determinants of health titled Closing the gap in a generation: Health equity through action on the social determinants of health.
The results of the study on part-time and temporary workers health issues are not entirely surprising. Most part-time and temp employees receive limited training and often, do not qualify for workplace health benefits.
