Do Job Security Guarantees Work?
We investigate the effect of employer job security guarantees on employee perceptions of jobsecurity. Using linked employer-employee data from the 1998 British Workplace EmployeeRelations Survey, we find job security guarantees reduce employee perceptions of jobinsecurity. This finding is robust to endogenous selection of job security guarantees byemployers engaging in organisational change and workforce reductions. Furthermore, thereis no evidence that increased job security through job guarantees results in greater workintensification, stress, or lower job satisfaction.
