The study used a newly established indicator of precarious employment to study its effects in the connection between working life and private life, using an individualised work-to-life wellbeing approach. The indicator is the so-called precarious employment typologies, constructed from the characteristics of the variables, non-standard employment (objective precariousness) and job insecurity (subjective precariousness). The combination of these characteristics creates the employee types: 1) The not precarious employees, who are neither in non-standard employment nor feel subjective job insecurity; 2) The objectively precarious employees who are in non-standard employments but do not feel subjective job insecurity; 3) The subjectively precarious employees who are not in non-standard employment but do feel subjective job insecurity; 4) The double precarious employees who are both in non-standard employments and feel subjective job insecurity. The study is inspired by 'the Quality of Working Life Systemic Inventory' (QWLSI) tool, while adapted to extend the measure to private life.
