0902 Employment Protection Legislation & Job Stability: European Cross Country Analysis (S. Cazes & M. Tonin)

Discussion Paper 0902, "Employment Protection Legislation and Job Stability: An European Cross Country Analysis", by Sandrine Cazes & Mirco Tonin

This paper investigates the dynamics of job tenure in the European Union over the last decade. The analysis shows no generalized decrease in job tenure but a trend towards shorter tenure of young workers (15-24) in most European countries. Our results indicate that lower employment protection provided by law and by trade unions can explain this downward trend.
