This is the first study to show the relationship between loss of permanent employment and suicidal behaviors. We observed changes from permanent to precarious employment increased the risk of suicidal ideation, after adjusting for potential confounders including lifetime suicidal ideation at baseline. This association was more apparent when restricted analysis to workers without lifetime suicidal ideation at baseline.
