Non-standard forms of employment in Uganda and Ghana

ILO Working Papers from International Labour Organization

Abstract: This report aims to analyse non-standard forms of employment (NSFE) in Africa. NSFEs include part-time work, fixed-term contracts of different durations, and casual work arrangements. In particular, we look at NSFE incidence by population sub-groups, and their consequences in terms of job quality, including earnings and future career prospects. We focus on two sub- Saharan African countries, Uganda and Ghana, which have experienced very different economic outcomes in recent decades.
