On-the-Job Training, Firing Costs and Employment

  • Diaz-Vazquez, Pilar
  • Snower, Dennis J.

This Paper explores the influence of on-the-job training on the employment effect of firing costs. It shows that on-the-job training (generating firm specific skills) causes firing costs to have a contractionary influence on average employment (over the booms and recessions of the business cycle).
