Abstract

We investigate the impact of new work practices on working conditions. We use a unique French dataset providing information on individual workers for year 1998. New Work practices which play a key role in the success of the new economy, include job rotation and the use of quality norms. Working conditions are captures by occupational injuries as well as for employees and jobs characteristics and correcting for sample section bias, workers involved in the new work practices still face working conditions that are significantly worse than those of non innovative workers.
