Start Time and Worker Compensation Implications for Staggered-Hours Programmes

  • Eva Gutiérrez-i-Puigarnau
  • Jos N. Van Ommeren

There is little known about the effects of staggered-hours programmes that affect workers' working schedules to mitigate peak congestion. We examine the effect of workers' morning start times on their wages in Germany. In contrast to previous work based on cross-section data, we demonstrate that wages are not a function of, or maybe a slight inverse U-shaped function of, start time, suggesting that staggered-hours programmes might be welfare enhancing. © 2012 LSE and the University of Bath
