Temporary contracts, employment protection and skill: A simple model

Author

  • Casquel, Elena
  • Cunyat, Antoni

Abstract

We construct a theoretical labor market that incorporates skill differences across workers to identify under which conditions temporary contracts are a way to access to permanency. Firing costs and unemployment benefits increase the threshold productivity above which workers access to permanency.
