Duration Of Unemployment Benefits And Quality Of Post-unemployment Jobs : Evidence From A Natural Experiment
Author: Jan C. van Ours
Publisher: World Bank Publications
Number of Pages: 33
Book Description: This paper investigates how the potential duration of unemployment benefits affects the quality of post-unemployment jobs. It takes advantage of a natural experiment introduced by a change in Slovenia's unemployment insurance law that substantially reduced the potential benefit duration. Although this reduction strongly increased job finding rates, the quality of the post-unemployment jobs remained unaffected. The paper finds that the law change had no effect on the type of contract (temporary versus permanent), the duration of the post-unemployment job, or the wage earned in the job.
