Abstract: In this study, we use panel data built from the "Santé et itinéraire professionnel" (Sip) ("Health and Labor Market Histories") survey conducted in France in 2006-2007, we investigate whether handicaps have a significant impact on individuals' performance in the labour market depending on the sector of employment, distinguishing the effects of the handicap's length (transitory or permanent) and origin (accident or disease). We use the difference in differences (DiD) methodology with exact dynamic matching in order to control for both observable and unobservable correlated heterogeneity). We also control for lagged endogenous variables. We find that, whatever the origin of handicap, the public sector seems to fully protect people against losing one's job in the case of transitory handicap (less one year) whereas it strongly decreases the likelihood of losing one's job in the case of permanent handicap. Nevertheless, in the private sector, handicap has a negative impact whose magnitude varies according to the persistence and the origin of handicap, as well as gender.
