Measuring employment security in Europe using surveys of employers

Morgan, J., Genre, V. and Wilson, C. (2001) Measuring employment security in Europe using surveys of employers Industrial Relations, 40, (1), pp. 54-72. (doi:10.1111/0019-8676.00195).

Record type: Article


Using results from surveys in which employers were questioned about their freedom to shed staff, we develop a measure of employment security in Europe. We seek to identify which institutional factors are correlated with the responses of employers and find that they appear to reflect the strength of legal restrictions and trade unions and the prevalence of atypical employment. Our results are used to compile an index of employment security that has both a temporal and a cross-country dimension.
