2021. Vol. 11. No. 2. P. 98–123 [issue contents]
Purpose. The problem of precarious employment, the scope of which is steadily expandingin different countries of the world, is discussed. The purpose of this paper is to determine the contentof precarious employment, identify problems and approaches to their psychological study. The reviewactively uses interdisciplinary knowledge. Findings. Multidimensional interpretations of precariousemployment are analyzed, which include not only the type of employment (non-standard), but alsothe conditions of employment and its subjective components. The main subject area is considered:the influence of precarious employment on the health and psychological well-being of a person. The transition from the study of precarious employment to the study of careers in conditions of precariousemployment is recorded, the concepts of “career complexity”, “discontinuous occupational trajectory”,“employment strain” are revealed. The necessity of analyzing the social contexts of precariousemployment is justified. Conclusions. The analysis of the literature made it possible to identifythe directions of the evolution of ideas about precarious employment and ways of studying it. It isnecessary to develop a definition and concept of precarious employment which more fully presents its psychological components. The progress in this direction will allow taking into account the interaction between manifest and latent precarity in the development of complex psychodiagnostic tools. It isconcluded that it is necessary to study the psychological prerequisites and mechanisms of adaptation to unstable forms of employment. The value of the results. In Russian science, the psychology of precarious employment is clearly insufficiently studied. The review will contribute to the development of organizational psychology and labor market psychology, as well as increase the importance of psychological research on employment in Russia, especially in the context of the global threat of COVID-19, which is rapidly transforming labor relations.
