Abstract: The economic environment is marked in particular by an increase in relationships between contractors and subcontractors and more flexible management of production or employment. The different forms of labour flexibility imposed on employees have an impact on working conditions, which often prove difficult or deteriorated in subcontracting. A qualitative survey based on interviews was conducted to identify contrasting cases of career paths marked by subcontracting employment. It sheds light on cases in the business services sector: cleaning or security and guarding professions. The survey also makes it possible to understand which are the mains forms of labour flexibility sought by subcontracting firms (external quantitative flexibility, internal quantitative flexibility, employee versatility, wage flexibility). The results show how this flexibility is experienced by subcontracting employees. More generally, these results question the renewal of forms of labour market segmentation.
