Abstract

Anhand eines Paneldatensatzes der drittelmitbestimmten Unternehmen im DAX, MDAX und SDAX zwischen 1998 und 2007 wird der tatsächliche Einfluss der Arbeitnehmervertreter im Aufsichtsrat über in der Spieltheorie etablierte Machtindizes gemessen. Dabei zeigt sich, dass faktisch trotz Erfüllung der gesetzlichen Vorgabe nur in rund einem Drittel der betrachteten Unternehmen ein der Arbeitnehmervertreterquote im Aufsichtsrat entsprechender Einfluss gegeben ist. In fast der Hälfte der betrachten Fälle beschränkt sich der Arbeitnehmereinfluss auf reine Informationsrechte. Regressionsanalysen deuten auf einen umgekehrt U-förmigen Zusammenhang zwischen Arbeitnehmereinfluss im Aufsichtsrat und Unternehmens¬perfor-mance hin.
