Abstract

The employment duration and labour contracts can constitute an effective tool to adapt to the different problems of informational asymmetries and uncertainty faced by the employer. Two types of analyses are proposed. A first analysis emphasizes on the contracting costs and the level of uncertainty. The second analysis focuses on the incentive and selection effect of the employment duration. The estimates are carried out from French data called TDE-MLT, conducted by the DARES. An econometric treatment of the endogeneity of the labour contract status and unobservable heterogeneity is carried out. Our results show that wages positively affect employment duration. This confirms the positive effect of contracting costs reported. Moreover, staying in a firm more than tow years increases the length of the next contract.
