Effiziente Fixlohnverträge für arbeitsfreudige Arbeitnehmer mit Berichtspflichten

  • Neunzig, Alexander R.
Registered author(s):

    Für die Prinzipal-Agenten-Theorie ist es ein weitgehend ungelöstes Rätsel, warum reale Arbeitsverträge sehr geringe monetäre Leistungsanreize spezifizieren. In dieser Arbeit wird auf der Grundlage des Prinzipal-Agenten-Ansatzes ein Modell entwickelt, dass Fixlohnverträge erklären kann. Hierzu wird einerseits angenommen, dass Arbeitnehmer nicht nur Arbeitsleid, sondern auch Arbeitsfreude empfinden. Zudem wird angenommen, dass die Leistung eines Arbeitnehmers durch Überwachungsorgane kontrolliert und sanktioniert wird. Da eine derartige Anreizgestaltung dazu führen kann, dass Arbeitnehmer einen Teil ihrer Arbeitszeit für unproduktive berichtende Tätigkeiten verwenden, ist möglicherweise ein Verzicht auf Überwachung die effiziente zweitbeste Vertragsform.
