Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This article synthesises evidence on the experiences of immigrants in the United Kingdom who are engaged in precarious employment and explores the effects of precarious employment on their health and wellbeing. This study reveals that migrants in precarious employment often experience negative health outcomes including injury, anxiety and depression. Stress response theories and risk factors associated with occupational injury help explain how employment specific factors influence health. The study shows that immigrant-related factors like pre-migration experience and concerns around social exclusion mediate precarious employment’s effect on health.
