Abstract: This paper evaluates the impact of temporary and fixed term contracts on temporary workers’ posterior likelihood of being hired on a permanent basis in Emilia Romagna. Using administrative data from 2008 to 2015 and two types of temporary contractual agreements as treatment, we adopt propensity score techniques to assess which one is more likely to act as a stepping stone towards permanent jobs with respect to a control group. We find no evidence for a stepping stone in the short run, with agency workers, though, performing slightly better than fixed term workers in the medium run.
