  • Employment Quality as a Health Determinant: Empirical Evidence for the
           Waged and Self-Employed
    • Authors: Jessie Gevaert, Karen Van Aerden, Deborah De Moortel, Christophe Vanroelen
      Abstract: Work and Occupations, Ahead of Print.
      In this study, the authors investigate the health associations of different employment arrangements in the contemporary European labor market. In doing so, a new approach based on the concept of “employment quality” is introduced. Employment quality refers to the multiple dimensions characterizing the employment situation of wage- and self-employed (European Working Conditions Survey 2015 – N = 31,929). Latent class cluster analyses were applied to construct an overarching typology of employment quality for the waged and self-employed. Using logistic regression analyses, strong associations were found with mental well-being and self-reported general health, pointing at a disadvantaged situation for the most precarious employment arrangements. The study shows that employment quality should be taken seriously as a health determinant both among waged workers and the self-employed. Our (novel) holistic approach offers an alternative to current analyses of the health associates of labor market segmentation that were criticized for being overly simplistic and amounting to inconclusive findings.

  • Production Regimes and Class Compromise Among European Warehouse Workers
    • Authors: Nadja Dörflinger, Valeria Pulignano, Steven P. Vallas
      Abstract: Work and Occupations, Ahead of Print.
      The orderly functioning of global capitalism increasingly depends on the labor of logistics workers. But social scientists have yet to produce nuanced accounts of the labor process in the many ports, warehouses, and distribution centers that lie at the heart of logistics work. In this study, the authors seek to connect the nascent field of critical logistics studies to theories of the labor process in an effort to understand the production regimes that arise in warehouse work under different economic and regulatory conditions. Using qualitative data gathered at four European warehouses owned by the same third-party logistics firm, the authors identify several distinct types of production regimes at these warehouses and analyze the conditions accounting for each. Even in this globally oriented industry in which firms seek to standardize their international operations, locally rooted conditions play a significant role, generating sharply different forms of labor control even within the same firm.

  • Why Has Computerization Increased Wage Inequality' Information,
           Occupational Structural Power, and Wage Inequality
    • Authors: Tali Kristal
      Abstract: Work and Occupations, Ahead of Print.
      This article offers a new account of rising inequality by providing a new explanation for the observed correlation between computerization and earnings. The argument is that as computers transformed work into a more knowledge-intensive activity, occupations located at critical junctions of information flow have gained greater structural power, and thereby higher wages. Combining occupational measures for location in the information flow based on the Occupational Information Network with the 1979–2016 Current Population Surveys, the analyses reveal a rising wage premium for occupations with greater access to and control of information, independent of the spectrum of skills related to computerization.

  • Varieties of Precarity: How Insecure Work Manifests Itself, Affects
           Well-Being, and Is Shaped by Social Welfare Institutions and Labor Market
    • Authors: Hande Inanc
      Abstract: Work and Occupations, Ahead of Print.
      Precarious Lives addresses one of the most important developments in employment relations in the neoliberal era: increase in labor precarity and the subsequent decline in employee well-being. Drawing on data on social welfare institutions and labor market policies in six rich democracies, the author shows that work is less precarious, and workers are happier, when institutions and policies provide job protection, and put in place support systems to buffer job loss.

  • Surgical Patient Safety Officers in the United States: Negotiating
           Contradictions Between Compliance and Workplace Transformation
    • Authors: Catherine van de Ruit, Charles L. Bosk
      Abstract: Work and Occupations, Ahead of Print.
      A largely uncoordinated patient safety movement arose in response to the Institute of Medicine’s 1999 report on patient safety, To Err Is Human. Two key outcomes have resulted from that movement: (a) new guidelines that enlarge requirements for documenting compliance with patient safety data and (b) a new obligation for health care organizations to create a “safety culture” based on the “science” of safety. The organizational title patient safety officer (PSO) designates a member of an emerging occupation charged with assuming these enlarged responsibilities. This article seeks, first, to describe the emergence of this new organizational role, the PSO; second, to identify the new tensions that task and mission inflation have created for PSOs; and third, to examine how PSOs manage the tensions between their increased core work task and their new professional mission as agents of organizational change. Drawing on interviews conducted with 32 PSOs, 127 nurses, and 36 physicians in 17 surgical departments across 5 states in the United States from 2012 to 2015, the authors find that PSOs most commonly resolve the tension between core work activity and professional mission by focusing on their task as agents of audit and compliance. The authors find, as well, that when PSOs attempt to use their expanded role as social reformers to change behaviors in surgery, they must overcome the resistance of frontline workers. They require cooperation from executives and surgeons to effect change. When this support is unavailable, PSOs lose their voice and may abandon efforts to improve safety.

  • Managers Shaping the Service Triangle: Navigating Resident and Worker
           Interests Through Work Design in Nursing Homes
    • Authors: Lander Vermeerbergen, Aoife M. McDermott, Jos Benders
      Abstract: Work and Occupations, Ahead of Print.
      Managers play a key role in shaping the service triangle and navigating stakeholder interests within this. In health care, labor shortages are prompting consideration of the consequences of care delivery for service users and staff. Here, the authors consider how senior nursing home managers tasked with balancing resident and worker interests manage tensions using work design. The findings identify a five-cluster typology, reflecting variations in how managers from 20 Flemish nursing homes operationalize the same resident-centered care model. Managers purposively shape a different service triangle in each operationalization, variously prioritizing benefits for residents, seeking the golden mean, or attempting to suppress tensions.

  • Paying the Price for a Broken Healthcare System: Rethinking Employment,
           Labor, and Work in a Post-Pandemic World
    • Authors: Ariel C. Avgar, Adrienne E. Eaton, Rebecca Kolins Givan, Adam Seth Litwin
      First page: 267
      Abstract: Work and Occupations, Ahead of Print.
      Even before the word pandemic reentered the lexicon, pressures stemming from institutional and technological change challenged policymakers and provider organizations to rethink core features of the manner in which we deliver healthcare. This essay introduces a special issue devoted to the consequences of change on the healthcare sector’s varied stakeholders. It does so in the context of our eventual, post-coronavirus reemergence and a renewed interest in remaking the healthcare system in light of its obvious deficiencies. Towards that end, we introduce the five papers composing this special issue, each of which informs the ways that change actually transpires in healthcare organizations and systems.

  • Moving From Adoption to Use: Physicians’ Mixed Commitments in Deciding
           to Use Robotic Technologies
    • Authors: Daniel A. Menchik
      First page: 314
      Abstract: Work and Occupations, Ahead of Print.
      This article shifts sociological attention from doctors’ adoption of medical innovations to ask how doctors decide to use expensive technologies adopted by administrators. It draws upon a content analysis of clinical research and 25 interviews with cardiologists who must decide whether to use a computer mouse- and algorithm-driven technology and whose status is partially based on manual dexterity—“good hands.” Physicians’ decisions regarding complex medical technologies ultimately depend less on jurisdictional conflict than on their commitments to peers and venues with whom they trained or currently work. A typology of decision processes is proposed, suggesting the usefulness of capturing foreground preoccupations and the background conditions affecting the physician situations.

  • From Time Sheets to Tablets: Documentation Technology in Frontline Service
           Sector Managers’ Coordination of Home Healthcare Services
    • Authors: Tina Wu
      First page: 378
      Abstract: Work and Occupations, Ahead of Print.
      Research on service work theorizes a triangle of power alliances between workers, managers, and customers, while studies on electronic health records (EHRs) focus on user experiences. Using an ethnography of a home healthcare company, this article explores how EHR affects the roles of frontline managers in the service triangle. Managers using traditional paperwork perform mediational authority. They interpret accounts from workers and clients to create an official record. Managers using app-based EHR software perform directive authority by telling staff how to document, but they lack the power to directly alter the record. Thus, documentation technologies have unintended implications for roles and relationships in service sector work.

  • Path Dependency Versus Social Unionism in Healthcare: Bringing Employers
           Back In
    • Authors: Rosemary Batt, John Kallas, Eileen Appelbaum
      First page: 406
      Abstract: Work and Occupations, Ahead of Print.
      A central problem in contemporary employment relations is the fragmentation of work. This process is occurring in health systems as they decentralize services from hospitals to outpatient centers. While some unions have maintained inclusive employment systems, others have not. What explains this variation' The authors address this question through a matched case comparison of healthcare unions in Rochester and Buffalo, New York. The cities share many similarities, but in Buffalo unions have expanded their power, while in Rochester they have not. The authors show how path dependency from institutional legacies of employer power has shaped union capacity in the current period.
