A Model of Labour Demand with Linear Adjustment Costs
This paper formulates a discrete-time model to study the effects of firing costs on labour demand by a firm facing linear adjustment costs under serially independent productivity shocks. We show that a rise in firing costs reduces the firm's marginal propensities to hire and fire, and may increase or decrease its average steady-state labour demand.
