definition of casualization
the process by which employment is changing from full-time and contract positions to casual positions
Measuring casualization is important because it can negatively affect job security and has certain flow-on effects that influence other aspects of social life, such as the capacity to purchase property, engage in further education, support superannuation, or afford private health insurance. Casualization may be linked to under-employment.
