    Abstract

    The main purpose of the article is to analyze employers' practices in terms of layoffs over the period 1999-2009. Our empirical approach is based on firm dataset from matching worker movements data (EMMO-DMMO) and accounting data (EAE). We want to identify the factors linking the two types of layoffs (for economic reason and for personal reason). The results of the econometric analysis show a separation between dismissal for personal reason and dismissal for economic reason : on the one hand, the economic indicators have a more systematic influence on dismissal for economic reason ; on the other hand, worker management variables are clearly more associated with the use of dismissal for personnal reason.
