dc.description.abstractIn this paper we use a reform in the applicability of the Protection Against Dismissal Act orKündigungsschutzgesetz in Germany to identify employment effects of the legislation forsmall establishments. Using a panel of establishments for the period 1997-2001, we findsome evidence that a tightening of the threshold resulted in a higher probability ofpersistence and a lower probability of growth for the units in the treatment group during thepost-reform years. When using the establishment size as according to the legislation, theeffects were the strongest for establishments which were further away from the threshold.This result could reflect the presence of other institutional barriers or adjustment costs thanthose imposed by the Act. Alternatively, small establishments are unlikely to have perfectinformation regarding the applicability of the legislation. This is somewhat supported by theresults when taking all employees as the measure for the establishment size. However, thereis also some evidence that these results are being driven by other factors than the reform ofthe legislation.en_US
