Rund 11% der Arbeitnehmer in Luxemburg können der Gruppe zugeordnet werden, die häufig Informations- und Kommunikationstechnologien nutzt, um fern von ihrer organisationalen Arbeitsstelle zu arbeiten. Insbesondere bei männlichen und höher gebildeten Arbeitnehmern sowie bei Managern und Arbeitnehmern in akademischen Berufen ist dieser Anteil an Nutzern stärker ausgeprägt. Diese Arbeitsplatz fernen Nutzer von Informationstechnologien geben im Durchschnitt ein höheres Maß an Autonomie und Partizipation bei der Arbeit an, sind jedoch verstärkt von problematischen psychosozialen Arbeitsbedingungen (z.B. Mobbing, Work-Life-Konflikte) sowie Burnout betroffen. [less ▲]

Cross-border employment and residence are becoming a very important type of mobility in border regions. In the Greater Region, consisting of Luxembourg, Lorraine, Wallonia, Saarland and Rhineland-Palatinate, around 213,000 people live and work in two different countries. Most of the cross-border commuters are employed in Luxembourg, representing 44% of the salaried population of Luxembourg. Additionally, the Greater Region is a space of cross-border residential mobility; meaning some people commuting to Luxembourg are former residents of Luxembourg and vice versa. The aim of this paper is to examine the development of the cross-border mobility phenomenon over the last 20 years, as well as to present principal cross-border residential flows of people working in Luxembourg. Furthermore, the paper discusses the impacts these flows have had on the Greater Region. A change has been recognized in the direction of migration flows. Whereas in the 1990s, most of cross-border residential migration was oriented towards Luxembourg, the direction has now changed towards the neighboring countries. Now some German, French and Belgian villages are impacted by these migration trends regarding e.g. an increase of housing prices, different languages, integration and schooling. Furthermore, from a conceptual point of view, it is difficult to describe the reality of the cross-border phenomenon due to the diversification of profiles and trajectories. This paper consists of two methodological strands, showing on one hand different cross-border developments based on large quantitative datasets and on the other hand giving an impression of impacts and challenges caused by cross-border migration based on qualitative interviews.

The aim of this study is to develop a tool to identify elements of perceived work contexts with the aim to improve career development practices. We think that to understand how the transfer of experience occurs, it is necessary to comprehend the features of work contexts as well as the tasks and work activities in which a person is engaged, in order to propose effective career development practices. This article focuses on the construction and validation of an inventory of work contexts because, to our knowledge, no French-speaking tool exists. [less ▲]

We develop a consistent stochastic thermodynamics for environments composed of thermodynamic reservoirs in an external conservative force field, that is, environments described by the generalized or Gibbs canonical ensemble. We demonstrate that small systems weakly coupled to such reservoirs exchange both heat and work by verifying a local detailed balance relation for the induced stochastic dynamics. Based on this analysis, we help to rationalize the observation that nonthermal reservoirs can increase the efficiency of thermodynamic heat engines. [less ▲]

We identify the conditions under which a stochastic driving that induces energy changes into a system coupled with a thermal bath can be treated as a work source. When these conditions are met, the work statistics satisfy the Crooks fluctuation theorem traditionally derived for deterministic drivings. We illustrate this fact by calculating and comparing the work statistics for a two-level system driven respectively by a stochastic and a deterministic piecewise constant protocol. [less ▲]

The employment structure undergoes constant change. Certain occupations grow while others decline under the pressure of technological advances, internationalization and welfare state reforms. This evolution at the aggregate level has been well documented. Our knowledge of how macro-level change in the employment structure is brought about through micro-level career adjustments is less extensive. Drawing on panel data, this paper examines the types of workers most likely to leave occupations that have declined over the past 20 years, and the most likely destination of these exits in Great Britain, Germany and Switzerland. Overall, we find that women are more likely than men to leave a declining occupation, and the most likely route out of declining occupations for female workers is towards low paid growing occupations. Clerical workers are more likely to exit to high paid growing occupations than production workers, and male production workers are at higher risk than female clerks of exiting into unemployment.

As the industrialized world faces a rapidly aging population, it has become increasingly important to understand the factors that influence the well-being of older persons. In this regard, many scholars have emphasized the importance of social connectedness. Various theories seek to explain social connectedness in later life, particularly as it applies to workforce involvement. Among those theories, we engage the theories of activity-substitution and of complementarity, and we seek to discover which provides a better account of the social and work lives of older Americans. We do so through an analysis of the first 2 waves (Wave 1: 2005–2006, Wave 2: 2010–2011) of the National Social Life, Health, and Aging Project (NSHAP). Workforce transitions over time are assessed for their impact on 3 social connectedness outcomes: expansiveness of close networks, overall friendship network, and social participation. Results provide strong support for the theory of activity-substitution. Furthermore, our results show that those re-entering paid work after some time out of the workforce show the largest changes in social connectedness. The present study reinforces the importance of studying social connectedness as a multidimensional concept and draws attention to the increasing variability in workforce participation patterns among older persons.

The COVID-19 took by surprise most Member States of the European Union, as they underestimated the rapid spread of the contagion in the continent. The response of the Member States was asymmetrical, individualistic and significantly slow. The first measures taken were to close down the internal borders. The response of the European Union was even slower to the point that and it was not until March 17th 2020 that the external borders were closed. These actions affected legal migration into the European Union from four perspectives: 1) it affected the mobility of those third country nationals who were on temporary stay in the Member States; 2) the entry of third country nationals to do seasonal work; 3) the entry and stay of legal migrants; and 4) the status quo of the third country nationals already residing in the Member States, especially those who have a loss of income. This article will deal with the measures taken by Member States on who to manage the immigration services during the crisis as well as the measures taken in order to deal with overstayers, seasonal workers and other legal migrants. Finally, we will focus in the vulnerable situation that third-country national salaried workers are exposed due to the loss of income or loss of employment in the Member States and the risk of being returned to their country of origin.
