This report sets out to describe what labour market segmentation is and why it is problematic for the labour market and society, as well as disadvantaged groups. It takes a broad view of the term to examine the situation that arises when the divergence in working conditions between different groups of workers is attributable to factors other than differentials in human capital levels. The report explores which policies or instruments are most effective in combating labour market segmentation, taking into account specific situational characteristics. The report offers a novel approach to the study of labour market segmentation that combines a quantitative empirical analysis with a policy analysis.

    Segmentação do mercado de trabalho: testar novas análises empíricas e políticas

    Autor(es): 
    Eurofound

    Este relatório visa descrever o que é a segmentação do mercado de trabalho e o motivo por que é problemática para o mercado de trabalho e a sociedade, bem como para os grupos desfavorecidos. Adota uma visão global do termo, a fim de analisar a situação que surge quando a divergência nas condições de trabalho entre diferentes grupos de trabalhadores é atribuível a outros fatores que não as diferenças nos níveis de capital humano. O relatório explora as políticas ou os instrumentos mais eficazes para combater a segmentação do mercado de trabalho, tendo em conta as características situacionais específicas. Apresenta uma nova abordagem para o estudo da segmentação do mercado de trabalho, que combina uma análise empírica quantitativa com uma análise política.
