Resumen Part-time work is condemned by many as a threat to full-time jobs, a precarious form of employment and a source of unequal treatment of women workers. It is also widely defended as a regular, well-protected way to reconcile the needs and preferences of workers with the operational requirements of enterprises, to create jobs, and to benefit workers with family responsibilities, workers approaching retirement and other special groups. There are now more than 50 million part-time workers in the industrialised market economics alone, and in some countries nearly half of all working women are part-timers. This article examines the reasons of part-time work; the level of legislative protection; national programmes which increase access to part-time employment; and the differing forms of part-time work in practice.
