Work sharing and productivity: evidence from firm level data
This paper is the first to examine empirically how work sharing influences workers' productivity, using a unique data set from a large Canadian firm. This firm has adopted a work sharing scheme for one year, which allows comparison of workers' productivity with and without the work sharing programme. It is found that work sharing has led to a significant decrease in labour productivity.
