Abstract

Ähnlich wie in anderen europäischen Ländern wurde der Einsatz von befristeten Beschäftigungsverhältnissen in Deutschland seit den 1980ern vereinfacht. Als Folge dieser Vereinfachungen nimmt die Bedeutung dieser Beschäftigungsform als Instrument zur Flexibilisierung der Arbeitsnachfrage gerade bei geringqualifiziert Beschäftigten zu. Obwohl die Möglichkeit von Befristungen Chancen für Arbeitgeber und Arbeitnehmer eröffnet, wird in der Literatur argumentiert, dass befristete Beschäftigungsverhältnisse eine Art "Sackgasse" darstellen und mit geringeren Investitionen in berufliche Weiterbildung verbunden sind. In diesem Beitrag wird anhand der Daten des Mikrozensus 2004 untersucht, welchen Einfluss befristete Arbeitsverträge auf die Beteiligung an beruflicher Weiterbildung geringqualifiziert beschäftigter Personen haben. Die empirische Analyse wird mit Hilfe eines rekursiven bivariaten Probitmodells durchgeführt. Aus den Ergebnissen lässt sich schließen, dass geringqualifiziert Beschäftigte mit befristeten Arbeitsverträgen keinen systematischen Nachteil gegenüber unbefristet Beschäftigten beim Zugang zu beruflicher Weiterbildung haben.
