dc.description.abstractThis paper investigates whether and to what extent employment policy measures (co-)financed by the European Social Fund in Germany meet their objective. Specifically, it isanalyzed whether qualification programs for employed workers in the German state ofSaxony were effective in terms of employment protection. To this end, a control functionapproach is implemented which utilizes a unique firm-level dataset. This model explicitlyaccounts for unobserved heterogeneity between participating and non-participatingcompanies by modeling the participation decision process. Our results suggest a positiveeffect of program participation. However, this positive treatment effect varies considerablyacross different sub-groups of the treatment as well as the comparison group.en_US
