''Implicit contracts and industrial relations - Evidence from German employer-employee data''
( 2015, Vol. 35 No.1 )
I test the evidence for implicit contracts across different regimes of industrial relations in Germany. The result is that there is strong evidence for implicit contracts. Comparing regimes of industrial relations, I find stronger support for implicit contracts in firms with individual bargaining and when a works council exists.
Keywords: Implicit contracts, industrial relations, employer-employee data, Germany
JEL: J3 - Wages, Compensation, and Labor Costs: General
E3 - Prices, Business Fluctuations, and Cycles: General (includes Measurement and Data)
