L'insicurezza lavorativa: antecedenti e conseguenti extra organizzativi - Psychological research usually studied antecedents and consequents of job insecurity at an intra-organizational level. This paper aims to: analyze the relationship between contract (temporary vs. permanent work) and job insecurity; propose a model of antecedents for job insecurity; explore the effects of job insecurity on extra-organizational contexts. Results derive from secondary analysis of two databases and from a qualitative research conducted following a grounded theory approach. Results show: the weak relationship between contract and job insecurity; the need to consider broader antecedents, such as social context, interpersonal and media exchange; the impact of job insecurity on consumption behaviors and other extra-organizational aspects of life.
Keywords: Job insecurity, temporary work, consumption.
