Equal Outcomes, but Different Treatment – Subtle Discrimination in Email Responses From a Correspondence Test in Switzerland

Pubblicato online: 17 Aug 2019
Pagine: 143 - 160

Astratto

Abstract

Correspondence tests on discrimination usually report only whether an applicant was invited for a job interview or not. Yet, data from a field experiment in Switzerland demonstrate that candidates with the same outcome are not necessarily treated equally. The paper complements correspondence test results with information on the time elapsed until candidates were contacted, as well as qualitative differences in invitation or rejection emails.

The Logic of Couplings: A Quantitative Practice-Theoretical Perspective on Mobilities

Pubblicato online: 17 Aug 2019
Pagine: 161 - 183

Astratto

Abstract

Motorized traffic is problematic ecologically and in the context of urban development. In the following, a perspective on mobility, traffic behaviour and individuals is presented, which links sociological practice­theoretical approaches with insights from mobility research. In addition to gaining insights into the mechanisms of persistence of automobility and its inherent dimension of inequality as well as the resulting consequences for a policy of sustainable mobility, this paper contributes to the further development of quantitative approaches in practice-theoretical research.

Family Development and Residential Trajectories of Two Birth Cohorts Living in Switzerland: Between Individualization and Standardization

Pubblicato online: 17 Aug 2019
Pagine: 185 - 214

Astratto

Abstract

In a context of increasing pluralization and individualization of family forms, families would often develop through (individual) spatial mobility. This challenges a dominant view of the family that emphasises spatial proximity and residential stability in a conducive environment for family development. Using data from the Swiss survey Family tiMes and multi-channel sequence analysis, this article examines the links between residential context, residential mobility and family development over the life course.

Employee Participation in Practice: Works Councils in the Tissue of Social Partnership in Switzerland

Pubblicato online: 17 Aug 2019
Pagine: 215 - 235

Astratto

Abstract

The article gives an overview on the situation of firm-level employee representation in the private sector in Switzerland: Where are they frequent? Which formal status do they enjoy? What are the topics they deal with? How do they position themselves between the affiliation to the firm and the interconnection beyond the limits of the firm? We show that the strong decentralisation of industrial relations in Switzerland leads to regulations and conventions at branch and firm level with a much larger impact on the practice than legal regulations.

How Factorial Survey Analysis Improves Our Understanding of Employer Preferences

Pubblicato online: 17 Aug 2019
Pagine: 237 - 260

Astratto

Abstract

Factorial Survey Analysis (FSA) is an analytical tool that presents respondents with fictional situations (“vignettes”) to be rated or judged. In this paper we study the use of FSA in labour market sociology, with a particular focus on employer-based surveys, and what they can teach us about hiring preferences. FSA is useful in this context as it targets employers directly and comes close to a causal design. This review article seeks to pinpoint the contributions FSA has made to the field, identify its limits and propose topics in which it may be useful.
