La réduction du temps de travail, recours accru au temps partiel ou baisse de la durée légale compensée améliore la qualité des offres, ce qui peut accroître l’offre de travail pour chaque niveau de salaire. Cet article étudie ce type d’effets à partir des simulations d’un modèle théorique de prospection d’emploi calibré sur les données individuelles françaises. Les simulations montrent qu’à demande inchangée, la probabilité d’être au chômage augmente suite à un accroissement de la proportion des temps partiel et diminue suite à une réduction de la durée du travail.
