Wpływ czasu pracy na zdrowie – podejścia badawcze i studium przypadku Francji

Main Article Content

Rafał Domański


In recent decades, many publications devoted to the relationship between working time and health have been written. Available sources characterise different methodological approaches and different research perspectives, and the conclusions presented have not been unequivocal yet. The literature refers to both direct research on the impact of working time on health and to descriptions of wider phenomena indirectly related to the issue. Most studies in this area face a potential bias of the sample and the problem of the inverse causality of the impact of working time on health. Due to the reform of the labour law in France that shortened working time while maintaining a constant income, the analysis of the impact of working time on health carried out on the example of this country has overcome the difficulties faced by previous publications in the area. It has been shown that the reduction in working time has positively contributed to the health of the French.
