Abstract The standard labor contract is increasingly replaced by flexible and diverse alternative work arrangements. We discuss, in the context of firm labor demand when product demand and costs are uncertain, real options, the right but not the obligation to flexibly adjust firm labor input.
People drive for Uber, work construction jobs and get hired for IT projects, part of alternative work arrangements increasingly defining working in America.
The most prominent of these factors include, but are not limited to, changes in the nature of work and the employment relationship as evidenced by the rise of the gig economy and alternative work arrangements, economic turmoil and disruptions, the rapid expansion in globalization and the rise of world-based organizations, advancements in technology and the resulting loss of low- and medium-skilled jobs, and ever-evolving legal changes affecting the workplace and employment.
Another key factor was trust, which O'Malley described as being fundamental to any alternative work arrangement. The employer must be able to trust that the schedule won't interfere with workflow, productivity, or profitability.
Supervisors often have the final say on whether or not an employees' request to work a given alternative work arrangement will be approved (that is, act as a gatekeeper).
Regular workers are those individuals who are directly hired into an open-ended employment arrangement using standard interviewing methods, rather than having first been screened through an alternative work arrangement. We classify individuals as screened workers if they are currently engaged in open-ended employment and they indicate that immediately prior to being employed in this capacity they were employed by the firm in an alternative work arrangement (i.e., without any break in employment continuity).
Almer and Kaplan (2002) surveyed public accountants working under an alternative work arrangement, and a similar group that worked under a traditional arrangement.
Telecommuting is an alternative work arrangement in which employees perform their normal job duties and responsibilities away from the regular work location (i.e., office) using computers, teleconferencing, cellular phones, voice mail, electronic mail, fax machines, and online database services.
There is merit in reviewing the resource materials even if you do not actually implement an alternative work arrangement in your area, because the mindset to identify all worker and supervisor deliverables (as in negotiated telework agreements) is a concept all areas of a business operation can find useful.
Telecommuting must be viewed and studied as a unique alternative work arrangement. Therefore, in this study, telecommuting is defined as a work arrangement where organizational employees regularly work at home or at a remote site one or more complete workdays a week in lieu of working in the office.
Arroyo said: "Other notable laws passed during the Third Regular Session include those which sought the following: the Department of Human Settlements and Urban Development; Institutionalizing Telecommuting as an Alternative Work Arrangement for Employees in the Private Sector; the Integrated Cancer Law; Strengthening the Policy on HIV-AIDS; Providing for the Special Protection of Children in Situations of Armed Conflict; Amending the Central Bank Act; Institutionalizing Energy Efficiency and Conservation."
