Efectos económicos de la protección del empleo: Elementos de juicio a partir de datos internacionales a nivel de actividad económica

  • Alejandro Micco

En este trabajo se analizan los efectos económicos de la legislación de protección del empleo en una muestra de países industrializados y en desarrollo. Los análisis indican que una legislación más estricta desacelera considerablemente la rotación de puestos de trabajo y que este efecto es más pronunciado en sectores que son intrínsecamente más inestables. En el trabajo también se descubre que el empleo y el valor agregado disminuyen en los sectores más afectados y que los efectos sobre el empleo y la producción son impulsados por una baja en el ingreso neto de empresas. Por contraste, el empleo promedio por planta no se ve afectado de manera considerable.
