Abstract

La Reforma Laboral de 2002 apuntó a dos objetivos específicos: implementación de mecanismos de protección social flexibilización laboral. En este documento se analizan algunos de sus efectos haciendo énfasis en la variación de las modalidades de contratación, los cambios en las horas de trabajo demandadas y los efectos en la duración del desempleo. De este análisis se concluye que la Reforma tuvo un efecto intensivo en generar mayor demanda de horas de trabajo pero que sólo tuvo un efecto marginal en la generación de empleo. Por otra parte, la duración del desempleo se redujo en el agregado.********The 2002 Labor Reform was Ahmed to two specific purposes: implementation of social protection measures and labor law flexibilization. On this document we analyze some of the effects of the Reform, with specific emphasis on the potential changes on labor contract modalities, working hours and unemployment duration. From our analysis we conclude that the Reform had an intensive effect (higher demand of working hours) yet it only had a marginal effect over employment. It reduced unemployment duration as well.
