Structural Change and Economic Dynamics, 2020, vol. 53, issue C, 180-188

Abstract: The paper analyses the impact of employment protection legislation for permanent and temporary workers on total employment, permanent and temporary employment. Using panel data techniques, we investigate whether the level and the changes in employment protection for permanent and temporary workers affect the dynamics of total salaried employment, permanent employment, and temporary employment. The results of this paper contribute to a better understanding of the determinants of the evolution of employment and of the determinants of the quality of employment.
