In this paper an attempt is made in finding associations between different types of employment contracts and employees’ subjective well-being in terms of life satisfaction, general health and distress. Specific attention is given to permanent employment versus temporary employment. It is also investigated whether different occupations or sectors bring about different associations. Different associations have been found between employment contract types and aspects of well-being. While temporary-staffing is associated with higher values of life satisfaction, regular temporary employment is associated with better general health. Associations however, appear to differ for people with different job types.
