dc.description.abstractThe theoretical probation literature shows that individuals have incentives to mimick "goodworkers" during periods of employment probation. This study empirically tests at theexample of absence behavior, whether such behavioral responses to the incentives ofprobation periods exist. We find significant responses of white collar employees and publicsector workers to probation periods: Once individuals enter into regular employment andemployment probation is completed, the probability of work absences takes discrete jumpsand is significantly above previous levels.en_US
