Does employment protection legislation promote immigrant self-employment?

Magdalena Ulceluse and Martin Kahanec

No 46, Discussion Papers from Central European Labour Studies Institute (CELSI)

Abstract: The paper analyses the effect of employment protection legislation on immigrant self- employment rates, using OECD indicators on the strictness of employment protection legislation (EPL). As migrants are outsiders in the labour market, the effect of employment protection on their probability of finding a job should be most likely negative, even if the net effect of employment protection on aggregate employment is unclear. We find no significant effects of EPL of migrant self-employment rates, in a multivariate context.
