Layoffs, quits and wage negotiations

Anne Gielen () and Jan C. van Ours

Economics Letters, 2010, vol. 109, issue 2, 108-111

Abstract: This paper studies the ex-ante effect of worker separations on wage negotiations using matched worker-firm data from The Netherlands. We find that wage negotiations aim to prevent separations; workers with a high propensity to quit are offered higher wages, while workers with a high layoff probability give up some of their wage.
