This section of the report provides a selection of findings from the AWRS on the work experiences of employees in their current employment.
In addition to information about current employment, the AWRS also collected some information about employee work experiences over the past 5 years and whether employees had experienced any periods of unemployment or extended unpaid leave (i.e. more than 3 months) over that time.
Reasons for not being in paid employment were also canvassed.
Of note, the findings about current employment presented in this section for almost all cases relate to the employee’s main job (see Technical notes for relevant information about employee characteristics).
