Labour shares and employment protection in European economies, di Mirella Damiani , Fabrizio Pompei and Andrea Ricci (SIE 2013)

Liberalisation of temporary contracts has become an important component of recent labour reforms but up to now available research has not paid attention to the impacts of these institutional changes on functional income distribution. The present paper intends to fill this gap by focussing on the effects of the reduction in strictness of employment protection of temporary jobs on factor shares. By considering country-sector evidence for 14 EU economies and the period 1995-2007, we obtain that these legislative changes caused a decrease in income share accruing to workers.
