1 Labor market reforms in Europe towards more flexicure labor markets? (joint work with Paul Marx and Caroline Wehner) Werner Eichhorst ILO / IZA Conference on Assessing Labor Market Reforms Geneva, 10 March 2016

2 Motivation The Great Recession has triggered a new wave of labor market reforms A window of opportunities to overcome deep labor market segmentation in the areas of employment protection, unemployment benefits and ALMPs To what extent do we see progressive reforms in the direction of more flexicure labor markets? 2

3 Segmented labor markets in Europe Segmentation via different types of employment protection has been a typical patterns of institutional change in European countries since the 1980s ( flexibility at the margin ) linked also to unequal access to unemployment benefits and active labor market policy measures -> secure vs. Insecure jobs Fixed-term employees and young people had to bear a disproportionate share of employment adjustment during and after the crisis Mobility to permanent jobs is very limited in some countries Crisis has increased political and economic problem pressure to modify existing institutional arrangements 3

4 % of total number of employees Share of temporary employment in total employment Source: Eurostat, ELFS (ESDE 2016). 4

5 % of all temporary employees in the previous year Year-to-year transition from temporary to permanent contracts Source: Eurostat, ELFS, EU-SILC (ESDE 2016). 2013* 2012*

6 Reforming employment protection Liberalizing dismissal protection and/or de/re-regulating temporary contracts? After the crisis, some countries with strong EPL for permanent workers have reduced/clarified dismissal protection more strongly than in earlier phases, ofthe combined with mechisms favoring internal and wage flexibility (e.g. Portugal, Spain, Italy, Greece, Slovenia, France) Trend in EPL for temporary contracts is less clear some reregulation, but certain tendency to make short-term contracts more costly to employers, e.g. higher UI contibutions in Slovenia, France, Italy, with incentives to convert into permanent jobs, or extra severance pay for temporary workers (Spain, France) 6

11 Assessment No significant change in long-standing trends in permanent vs. temporary hirings Some most recent reforms, e.g. Italian Jobs Act, are not yet covered in comparative data, but preliminary evidence shows some effect (combined with subsidization) Cyclical effects seem to dominate (at least for the time being) 11

12 Unemployment benefits In some countries, despite austerity situation, access to unemployment benefits was improved for people with short employment spells Examples: Reforms in Italy regarding more universal and more easily accessible UI benefits for those with short employment spells and project collaborator status (ASPI, Mini-ASPI and NASPI, DIS- COLL); similar initiative in France and Spain Some increase in benefit coverage in those countries (but not in others) 12

14 ALMPs ALMPs can shorten unemployment and increse hiring probabilities, thereby make a flexible labor market with high turnover more acceptable Training and hiring incentives can be particularly effective in stimulating mobility ALMPs are costly, they require substantial funding, proper (selective) targeting and effective delivery agencies Many countries have move in the direction of stronger activation, some also with increased spending and modernizing the public employment service but in times of austerity Countries with high unemployment could not increase spending in line with caseloads 14

17 Spending on PES per person looking for work, 2007 and , , , , , Source: Eurostat LMP database (ESDE 2016)

18 Conclusion Some tendency to close the gap between EPL for permanent and temporary contracts potentially facilitating permanent hirings Evidence available so far does not (yet) show clear evidence on changes in hiring structure probably too early Some improvement in unemployment benefit coverage for temporary workers No clear pattern in terms of ALMP spending, but efforts to modernize PES in many countries Recent reforms have only partially made labor markets more flexicure 18

19 Policy issues How to properly address the efficiency and fairness issue regarding flexible workers in the area of EPL? Banning fixed-term contracts might imply even more precarious types of work, e.g. certain forms of freelance work Moderate re-regulation of fixed-term contracts while easing dismissal protection is still a plausible approach Single contract may create new forms of segmentations in practice Further easing of transitions from temporary jobs to permanent ones via more training during fixed-term contract spells Incentives for employers to internalize costs of short-term employment and encourage permanent hirings (bonus/malus) 19
