    Turordningsregler - lagstiftning med konsekvenser eller spel för gallerierna?2018In: Ekonomisk Debatt, ISSN 0345-2646, Vol. 46, no 3, p. 5-16Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna artikel diskuterar nationalekonomisk forskning om de svenska turordningsreglerna. Vi visar att dessa inte är ett spel för gallerierna, vilket ofta hävdas, utan har betydande effekter på arbetsmarknadens funktionssätt. Den uppluckring av turordningsreglerna som genomfördes 2001 ökade företagens personalomsättning och produktivitet samt minskade de anställdas frånvaro. För grupper med en svagare position på arbetsmarknaden och som har lång anställningstid i förhållande till andra på företaget tycks även turordningsreglerna skydda mot uppsägningar och leda till högre löner.

    Does job security hamper employment prospects?2018Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    We use a reform in the Swedish employment protection legislation (EPL) that decreased dismissal costs for small firms only, to investigate the effect of EPL on the propensity to hire workers who were unemployed or in active labor market programs (ALMPs). The results indicate that less stringent EPL increased the share of workers hired from unemployment. In addition, our results suggest that transitions from some ALMPs to employment increased. Taken together, our results suggest that there was less screening of new hires after the reform, and that liberalization of EPL mitigates the stigma associated with unemployment and participation in ALMPs.

    Seniority rules, worker mobility and wages: evidence from multi-country linked employer-employee data2016Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    We construct a multi-country employer-employee data to examine the consequences of employment protection. We identify the effects by comparing worker exit rates between units of the same firm that operate in two countries that have different seniority rules. The results show that last-in-first-out rules reduce dismissals of older, more senior workers, especially in shrinking multinational firms, and increase their bargaining power, resulting in a steeper seniority-wage profile.

    Seniority rules, worker mobility and wages: evidence from multi-country linked employer-employee data2018In: Labour Economics, ISSN 0927-5371, E-ISSN 1879-1034, Vol. 51, p. 48-62Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We construct multi-country employer-employee data to examine the consequences of last-in, first-out rules. We identify the effects by comparing worker exit rates between different units of the same firms operating in Sweden and Finland, two countries that have different seniority rules. We observe a relatively lower exit rate for more senior workers in Sweden in the shrinking firms and among the low-wage workers. These empirical patterns are consistent with last-in, first-out rules in Sweden providing protection from dismissals for the more senior workers among the worker groups to whom the rules are most relevant. Similarly, we observe a steeper seniority-wage profile in Sweden, suggesting that last-in, first-out rules may also be beneficial for more senior workers in terms of compensation.

    Hur ska fler komma in på arbetsmarknaden?2018Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Det största problemet på den svenska arbetsmarknaden är hur lågutbildade, och då särskilt lågutbildade utrikes födda, ska komma i sysselsättning. Problemet har ställts på sin spets av den stora flyktinginvandringen. Centrala frågor för politiken är:

    • Vad kan skola och vuxenutbildning göra?
    • Vilken roll bör subventionerade anställningar spela?
    • Är visstidsanställningar en väg in på arbetsmarknaden eller en återvändsgränd?
    • Behövs nya typer av enkla, men också lägre betalda, jobb?

    Denna bok, skriven av sex arbetsmarknadsekonomer, analyserar frågorna och försöker utifrån forskningen ge svar på vilken politik som är lämpligast.

    Arbetsmarknadsekonomisk rapport: hur fungerar kollektivavtalen?2018Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    Hur fungerar kollektivavtalen? från i februari i år inriktades på kollektivavtalens funktionssätt. Analysen fokuserade på hur avtalssystemet kan komma att påverkas av en minskad facklig organisationsgrad och studerade särskilt företagens inställning till kollektivavtalen. Med svagare fack blir det viktigare för kollektivavtalens fortlevnad att dessa upplevs som positiva av företagen.

    Arbetsmarknadsekonomisk rapport: olika vägar till jobb2018Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    Den avslutande rapporten från rådet tar upp tre huvudfrågor: Håller traditionella heltidsanställningar som omfattas av kollektivavtal på att ersättas av mer ”flexibla” atypiska anställningar, vilket ofta hävdas i den allmänna debatten? Vad säger tidigare erfarenheter om i vilken utsträckning lågkvalificerade (”enkla”) jobb kan fungera som språngbrädor till mer kvalificerade och bättre betalda arbeten för dem som har svårt att ta sig in på arbetsmarknaden? Hur väl fungerar vuxenutbildning av olika slag för att förbättra arbetsmarknadsutfallen för utsatta grupper?

    Aktuell forskning visar små och osäkra effekter av hur sänkta lägstalöner påverkar sysselsättningen. För att öka kunskaperna om minimilönernas effekter borde arbetsmarknadens parter genomföra regelrätta experiment inom det nya etableringsuppdraget, skriver nationalekonomerna Mats Hammarstedt och Per Skedinger.

    Minimilöner och integration av flyktingar på arbetsmarknaden: så kan experiment förbättra kunskapsläget2017Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna artikel inleds med en översiktlig beskrivning av flyktingars situation på arbetsmarknaden i Sverige. Sedan kartläggs kunskapsläget beträffande effekter av förändrade minimilöner på sysselsättningen.

    Både teori och empiri pekar på att effekterna på sysselsättningen inte nödvändigtvis är symmetriska, utan att effekterna av sänkningar är mindre eller mer osäkra än effekterna av höjningar. Den osäkerhet som finns kring sysselsättningseffekterna av sänkningar av minimilönen måste därför anses vara större än den som rör effekterna av höjningar.

    Avslutningsvis presenterar vi ett konkret förslag på hur kunskaperna om minimilönernas effekter på sysselsättningen kan förbättras med hjälp av regelrätta experiment.

    Abstract [en]

    We analyze a reform of notice periods for employer-initiated separations in Sweden, which reduced the notice periods for newly hired older workers substantially but implied minor or no changes in the advance notices for younger workers. The reform was initiated at different times depending on collective agreement. These circumstances provide ample opportunity for the identification of its effects. Our findings indicate heterogeneous effects on hirings and separations across collective agreements.

    Employer attitudes towards refugee immigrants2014Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    We present a large survey with responses from Swedish firms on their attitudes towardsrefugees, regarding hiring, job performance, wage setting and discrimination. There is a greatdeal of heterogeneity in attitudes, but experience of having refugees on the payroll reducesnegative attitudes to them. Firms’ reasons for ceasing to have refugees as employees are notrelated to discrimination of refugees by staff or customers, but rather to poor job performance.While most firms agree with statements that wage cuts negatively affect worker cohesion,effort or the quality of applicants, employers who consider such cuts as employmentenhancing tend to not agree.#

    Employer attitudes towards refugee immigrants: Findings from a Swedish survey2016In: International labour review (Print), ISSN 0020-7780, E-ISSN 1564-913X, Vol. 155, no 2, p. 315-337Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Based on a large-scale survey of Swedish firms, the authors identify significant heterogeneity in their attitudes towards refugee hiring, job performance, wage setting and discrimination, though experience of employing refugees reduces negative attitudes. Firms' reasons for discontinuing their employment of refugees are not related to discrimination by staff or customers, but rather to refugees' suboptimal job performance. While the majority of firms do not regard the collectively agreed minimum wages as an important obstacle to the hiring of refugees, firms with a large share of refugees on the payroll report that reducing those wage rates would enhance employment substantially.

    Minimum wages and the integration of refugee immigrants2014Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper is the first to estimate the effects of minimum wages on the unemployment of refugee immigrants. The collectively agreed minimum wages raise both the incidence of unemployment and days in unemployment considerably for male refugees in Sweden; different estimation methods and models yield robust elasticities in the 1.8–2.0 range. The effects for young male natives are about half as large. There are heterogeneous effects with regard to country of origin and time of residence in Sweden for both male and female refugees. We account for spatial trends – a concern in some of the recent literature – as well as industrial trends. It turns out that only the latter affect our results.

    Effects of payroll tax cuts for young workers2014In: Nordic Economic Policy Review, ISSN 1904-4526, E-ISSN 1904-8092, no 1, p. 125-169Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In response to high and enduring youth unemployment, large payroll tax cuts for young workers were implemented in two Swedish reforms in 2007 and 2009. This paper analyses the effects of the reforms on worker outcomes and firm performance in the retail industry, an important employer of young workers. In general, the estimated effects on job accessions, separations, hours and wages, are small. For workers close to the minimum wage the estimates suggest larger, but still modest, effects on the probability of job accession. There is also some evidence of increasing profits in a subsample of firms that employed a relatively large number of young workers before the first reform, with estimated effects commensurate with small behavioural effects of the payroll tax cuts. The conclusion is that reducing payroll taxes is a costly means of improving employment prospects for the young.

    Employment consequences of employment protection legislation2011In: Nordic Economic Policy Review, ISSN 1904-4526, E-ISSN 1904-8092, Vol. 2, no 1, p. 45-83Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article surveys the literature and adds to the evidence on the impact of employment protection legislation on employment.  While stringent employment protection contributes to less turnover and job reallocation, the effects on aggregate employment and unemployment over the business cycle are more uncertain. Exploitation of partial reforms and the use of micro data in recent research appear not to have affected results regarding employment and unemployment in any systematic way.  Labour market prospects of young people and other marginal groups seem to worsen as a consequence of increased stringency of the legislation. It is debatable whether marginal groups have gained much from the widespread policy strategy to liberalize regulations of temporary employment and leave regulations of regular employment intact. My own analysis suggests that increased stringency of regulations for regular work is associated with a higher incidence of involuntary temporary employment, particularly among the young.

    Employment effects of union-bargained minimum wages: evidence from Sweden’s retail sector2015In: International journal of manpower, ISSN 0143-7720, E-ISSN 1758-6577, Vol. 36, no 5, p. 694-710Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose– The purpose of this paper is to examine the effects of collectively agreed increases in minimum wages for manual workers on employment transitions and hours.

    Design/methodology/approach– The econometric approach relies on the identification of workers affected by minimum wage changes, depending on their position in the wage distribution and contrasts outcomes for these workers to those for unaffected workers, with slightly higher wages.

    Findings– The analysis suggests that separations increase as minimum wages increase and that substitution between worker groups in response to changes in minimum wages is important in retail. In general, though, hours do not change much as minimum wages increase.

    Research limitations/implications– Analyses that deal with employment consequences of increasing minimum wages but disregard hours may exaggerate the overall decline in employment to the extent that job losses are concentrated among low-paid, part-time workers.

    Practical implications– With union-bargained minimum wages, unions and employers need to carefully consider the effects of increasing rates on employment.

    Social implications– The findings that there is a trade-off between higher wages among the low-paid and employment loss and that employment to some extent is reshuffled between individuals should be important from a welfare perspective.

    Originality/value– The literature on employment effects of minimum wages is large, but very few studies are concerned with union-bargained minimum wages. The assumptions of the econometric model are tested in a novel way by imposing fictitious minimum wages on lower-level non-manuals in the same industry, with turnover characteristics similar to those of manuals but covered by a different collective agreement with non-binding actual minimum wages.

    Låglönekonkurrens och lönereglering i ett nordiskt perspektiv2013In: Ekonomiska samfundets tidskrift, ISSN 0013-3183, E-ISSN 2323-1378, Vol. 66, no 2, p. 149-158Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Frågan om hur låglönekonkurrens genom arbetskraftsinvandring och utstationerad arbetskraft från EU:s nya medlemsstater ska hanteras är kontroversiell. Nationalekonomiskforskning påvisar stora samhällsekonomiska vinster av sådan låglönekonkurrens, men identifierar också ett behov av att kompensera grupper som, tminstone kortsiktigt, kan missgynnas. I denna artikel diskuteras frågan i ett nordiskt perspektiv och det hävdas att det inte är självklart att någon form av lönereglering är det bästa handlingsalternativet. Både en lagreglerad minimilön och allmängiltigförklaring av minimilönerna innebär att man avstår från samhällsekonomiska vinster.

    Non-standard employment in Sweden2018Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In Sweden, as in many other countries, marginal groups tend to be overrepresented in non-standard employment. A decomposition of the employment rate of full-time workers on permanent contracts reveals that non-standard employment contributes to a substantially weaker labour market attachment for females and the foreign born than suggested by conventional employment figures alone. Our econometric analysis shows that the negative wage premia associated with fixed-term employment are considerably smaller in Sweden, both for natives and foreign born, than those that have been found for other countries. This may be due to a highly compressed wage structure and extensive coverage of collective bargaining in Sweden. On the whole, the type of fixed-term contract seems not to matter for the estimated wage premia.

    Työmarkkinat Suomessa ja Ruotsissa – ruotsalainen näkökulma2016In: Talous & Yhteiskunta, ISSN 1236-7206, no 2, p. 10-17Article in journal (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [fi]

    Suomen ja Ruotsin työmarkkinoiden instituutioilla on monia yhteisiä piirteitä. Nämä monet samankaltaisuudet ovat inspiroineet suomalaisruotsalaisentutkimushankkeen näiden instituutioiden vaikutuksista. Yhtä huomattavaa eroa, ikääntyneiden korkeampaa työllisyysastettaRuotsissa, näyttää ainakin osittain selittävän heidän parempi irtisanomissuojansa. Suomi on kokenut pitkittyneen taantuman, ja Ruotsinpalkkaneuvottelujärjestelmää on ehdotettu malliksi Suomelle. Palkanmuodostus koko talouden tasolla on toiminut Ruotsissa hyvin, muttasuhteellisten palkkojen muodostus heikommin, ja paikallisen sopimisen vaikutukset eivät ole selviä.
