Abstract

Angesichts der seit mehr als zwei Jahrzehnten andauernden Massenarbeitslosigkeit ist das Kündigungsschutzrecht in den meisten kontinentaleuropäischen Ländern in den Mittelpunkt der Kontroverse um die Flexibilisierung der Arbeitsmärkte gerückt. Kritiker des Kündigungsschutzes behaupten, daß eine Deregulierung die Arbeitslosigkeit senkt, Befürworter heben dagegen die den Arbeitsplatzbestand schützenden Wirkungen hervor. Zunächst werden die Argumente der ökonomischen Theorie, die für und gegen einen staatlichen Kündigungsschutz sprechen, erläutert. Anschließend wird gezeigt, daß ein ökonomisch effizientes Kündigungsschutzrecht den Parteien einen Anreiz liefern muß, die Summe der Anpassungskosten und damit den bei einer Kündigung entstehenden Schaden zu minimieren.
