On the Determinants of Shift Work and Overtime Work: Evidence from German Establishment Data
Using data from German manufacturing establishments, this article examines the empirical determinants of shift work and overtime. Technology and the organization of work, the managerial environment, the structure of the workforce and industrial relations are important determinants. Despite the similarities in the role of some determinants, a series of important differences exists between the estimations for overtime and shift work. Moreover, using an instrumental variables probit model, the estimates indicate a negative relationship between shift work and overtime.
