Abstract

(Disponible en idioma inglés únicamente) En este trabajo se documenta el elevado nivel de protección contra la inestabilidad laboral en mercados laborales latinoamericanos y se analizan sus repercusiones sobre el empleo. Los autores muestran que las políticas de estabilidad laboral tienen un efecto considerable sobre el nivel y la distribución del empleo en América Latina. Esas políticas reducen el empleo y promueven la desigualdad. La organización institucional del mercado laboral incide tanto en el empleo como en la desigualdad.
