This chapter investigates the influence of precarious work among previously unemployed youth. In particular, it assesses on which terms the group in ‘Temporary’ and ‘Occasional’ employment can be regarded as being on an integrative track into the labour market in Finland, Norway, Scotland and Spain. The chapter identifies three operational indicators of integration into the labour market. As the background for selecting four countries for the empirical analysis, the wider context of welfare, market and family are introduced. It is assumed that the various functions of the temporary contract affect the integrative impact of being employed. It can be stated that being temporarily employed as a young person does not appear to imply that one is sufficiently integrated into the labour market.

Keywords:   labour market, temporary employment, Finland, Norway, Scotland, Spain, marginalisation, integration
