    Abstract

    We show that the severance pay scheme can serve as bond and improve the welfare. When the authority appropriately adjudges the worker's effort, the increase in a severance payment reduces the shirker''s expected benefit, so that the severance pay works as a bond, which is warranted by the authority.
