The recovery period from the pandemic reveals new trends in employment and health.  The strain of  health care systems has led to precarious workplaces in health care (Cleaver, Mohapatra, & Simard, 2021).  Cleaver et al. (2021) described a transformation into precarity of dysfunctional systems and structures in the health care system during the pandemic.  Levels of precarity have influenced practices of employment and have the potential to lead to new health care problems.  Benach, Vives, Tarafa, Delclos, and Muntaner (2016) developed a conceptual model for the dynamic and complex field of precarious employment and discuss associated health conditions.  Jabłońska and Zajdel (2020) explain three psychological behaviors can overlap with problematic Internet usage, narcissism, Machiavellianism, and psychopathy.  Uncertainty may also contribute to levels of precarity.  Vignoli, Guetto, Bazzani, Pirani, and Minello (2020) explained how the Survey of Economic Expectations provided data to understand how demographic, social, and economic circumstances have different views on uncertainty.  Research in corporate social responsibility may identify policies to reduce precarity.  Tilt (2016) suggested research on corporate social responsibility in the areas of government types, sociocultural values, and a longitudinal study of economic development.
