    Der vorliegende Beitrag argumentiert, daß die regionale Arbeitsmarktsituation (Zugänge in Arbeitslosigkeit und Zugänge an freien Stellen) die Entscheidung von Arbeitnehmern, eine Kündigungsschutzklage einzureichen, deutlich beeinflußt. Regressionsanalysen mit amtlichen Daten für die westlichen Bundesländer im Zeitraum 1964-1996 zeigen in Abweichung von früheren Befunden (Falke et al. 1981), daß die Häufigkeit von Kündigungsschutzprozessen deutlich und signifikant mit Unterschieden in der regionalen Arbeitsmarktsituation und mit deren zeitlichen Veränderungen erklärt werden kann. Die Modellschätzungen zeigen außerdem, daß das autonome Niveau der relativen Klagehäufigkeit, das nicht auf die Arbeitsmarktsituation zurückgeführt werden kann, im Beobachtungszeitraum gestiegen ist. Denkbare Ursachen dieser Klagenflut werden abschließend diskutiert.
