This dissertation aims to analyze the connection between part-time employment and the development of human capital on three levels: employees, companies and children. Part-timers often appear to take less training because employers are less inclined to invest in them. This pattern mainly applies to lower educated employees and for them part-time employment therefore more often leads to lower hourly wages. On the other hand, companies in the services sector appear to benefit from part-time employment. The company productivity appears higher because the deployment of part-time staff is more efficient. Also for the cognitive development of toddlers part-time work by mothers does not appear to have disadvantages.
