''The effects of a bonus-malus workers' compensation system on the labor force structure, productivity, and welfare''
( 2018, Vol. 38 No.2 )
This paper investigates the economic impact of adjusting premiums of workers' compensation systems, according to the firms' absenteeism rates. We develop a search and matching economy where workers are identical, but firms differ in terms of their Occupational Safety and Health (OSH). We show that this policy allows productivity, employment, and welfare to be improved.
Keywords: Health Insurance, experience rating, productivity, welfare, search and matching
JEL: I1 - Health: General
