The recall and new job search of laid-off workers: a bivariate proportional hazard model with unobserved heterogeneity

Bruce Fallick () and Keunkwan Ryu

No 2003-22, Finance and Economics Discussion Series from Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (US)

Abstract: Workers who lose their jobs can become re-employed either by being recalled to their previous employers or by finding new jobs. Workers' chances for recall should influence their job search strategies, so the rates of exit from unemployment by these two routes should be directly related. We solve a job search model to establish, in theory, a negative relationship between the recall and new job hazard rates. We look for evidence in the PSID by estimating a semi-parametric competing risks model with explicitly related hazards. We find only a small negative behavioral relationship between recall and new job hazard rates.
