Purpose - This paper discusses an impact of status on organization’s temporary employment. Status not only offers various opportunities for organization but also places constrains on organization. In this perspective, we propose that organization’s temporary employment will differ depending on the status. Design/methodology/approach - We predict that organization’s evaluated status has a U-shaped relationship with temporary employment because organizational social insecurity varies by the status. Moreover, we predict that organization’s categorical status has a positive effect on temporary employment since organizational legitimacy varies with the status and that the effect will be enhanced by an organizational niche. To verify these predictions, we examined a regression analysis using panel data of temporary employment in Korean universities. Findings - The results of regression analysis show that there is a U-shaped relationship between universities’ evaluated status and temporary employment. This implies that the middle status university is likely to minimize temporary employment because of conformity pressures. In addition, the results show that university’s categorical status has a positive effect on temporary employment and the effect is enhanced by university’s market concentration. This suggests that the categorical status has a strong impact on specialist university. Research implications or Originality - This paper contributes the development of temporary employment theory by applying duality of organizational status and identifies the organizational determinants of temporary employment in Korean universities.
