The Slovenian transition created labor displacements that were bigger than those experienced in North America in the 1980s. In Slovenia, probability of both layoffs and quits fell with worker tenure, firm profitability and expected severance costs. Individuals facing a higher probability of displacement accepted slower wage growth than otherwise comparable workers. The incentives to avoid displacement were strong - workers that actually were displaced faced a slow process of transiting out of unemployment with only one-third finding re-employment. Correcting for selection, real wage losses for displaced workers are comparable to those reported for displaced workers in North America.
