Abstract

Labour force transitions are investigated using a longitudinal database covering staff movements in the Queensland public service. The database covers those who have entered the public service through traditional recruitment methods as well as those who have entered through temporary and casual appointments. The analysis is based on a new methodology of cumulative incidence function testing and competing risks regression analysis. Interest is centred on entry by non-standard employees and their subsequent transition through the public service. It was found that non-standard employment can be a stepping stone to permanent employment but only for about one in four new non-standard employees.
