''Temporary contracts and the dynamics of job turnover''
( 2004, Vol. 10 No.4 )
We report results indicating that job turnover is not countercyclical in general but rather reflects the inability of smooth labor adjustment through the use of temporary employment contracts. Service establishments with a high share of temporary employment exhibit acyclical job reallocation, while only permanent jobs within manufacturing are found to be countercyclical.
Keywords: Dual labor markets
