Este trabajo se centra en averiguar en qué medida la llegada de la crisis ha afectado al empleo estable que se inició en nuestro país en los años de la expansión económica en los que la tasa de crecimiento de la contratación indefinida fue mayor. El objetivo es detectar si se observan diferencias entre los distintos tipos de contratación indefinida que llevan asociados distintos costes de entrada y salida del empleo según la causa de baja. La base de datos utilizada procede del enlace de la Muestra Continua de Vidas Laborales con los registros de contratos del Servicio Público de Empleo Estatal. Los resultados muestran un volumen importante de inestabilidad asociado principalmente a puestos de trabajo de baja productividad en los que la salida es por despido. This paper is focused on how the economic crisis has concerned the stable employment that began in our country during the last years of economic expansion, when the rate of growth of the open ended contracts was the highest. The objective is to assess if it can be observed differences between the types of those open ended contracts with different costs of entry and exit to employment as well as to measure the incidence on their duration depending on special causes of exits. The database used is the “Continuous Sample of Working life” linked with registered con-tracts in Spanish Public Employment Service. The results show an important volume of instability associated mainly with jobs of low productivity and dismissals.
