Abstract [en]

This paper concerns the subject of temporary employments and how the employment status affects the personal life of the employee. The aspects of the personal life which are being investigated is the employees possibilities to plan their long term future as well as their short term future. Furthermore, the employees social relations and spare time are being investigated. The paper is qualitative and is based on semi-structured interviews with four people between the age of 25 and 35 who are experienced with temporary employment. The results of the interviews are analyzed in light of Richard Sennetts theory about ”The corrosion of character”, which shows upon a contradiction between the character-building and today's job market. The conclusions are that the employees possibilities concerning long term planning, as well as short term planning, is aggravated by their temporary employment status. Their spare time seems to become less extensive and the time devoted to the social relationships decreases. However, we can not draw any conclusions on the social relations patterns affected at a deeper level. 

Abstract [sv]

Denna uppsats berör ämnet tidsbegränsade anställningar och hur anställningsformen påverkar den anställdes privatliv. De aspekter av privatlivet som undersöks är den anställdes möjligheter till lång- samt kortsiktig planering och sociala relationer samt fritid. Studien är kvalitativ och resultatet bygger på semistrukturerade intervjuer med fyra personer mellan 25 år och 35 år vilka alla har erfarenhet av tidsbegränsade anställningsformer. Resultatet från intervjuerna analyseras i ljuset av Richard Sennetts teori ”När karaktären krackelerar”, som visar på en motsättning mellan mänskligt karaktärsbyggande och dagens arbetsliv. Slutsatserna som dras är att den långsiktiga och kortsiktiga planeringen försvåras av den tidsbegränsade anställningsformen. Fritiden blir mindre omfattande och de sociala relationerna ägnas det mindre tid åt; dock kan vi inte uttala oss om de sociala relationernas mönster påverkats på ett djupare plan.
