dc.description.abstractIn many countries, Employment Protection Legislation (EPL) establishes different regulationsfor certain groups of workers who face more disadvantages in the labor market (youngworkers, women, unskilled workers, etc.) with the aim of improving their employability. Wellknownexamples are the introduction of atypical employment contracts (e.g. temporary anddetermined-duration contracts) which ease firing restrictions for some, but not all, workers.This paper discusses the effects of EPL varying among workers of different skills on the leveland composition of unemployment, job flows, productivity and welfare. By using an extensionof Mortensen-Pissarides? (1994) search model where heterogeneous workers compete forthe same jobs, we are able to identify several key channels through which changing firingcosts for some groups of workers affects hiring and firing of all workers and, hence, mayhave a different impact on aggregate labor market variables than reducing firing costs acrossthe board. Some analytical and simulation results also show that these effects ofdifferentiated firing costs by workers? skills may be different depending upon the initial state ofthe labor market.en_US
