Protected Mobility for Employment and Decent Work

Labour Market Security in a Globalised World - Employment Strategy Papers 2005/1


Discusses the implications of employment stability and flexibility for workers’ security and decent work. Shows the relationship between different industrial relation systems and labour market flexibility, stability and security. Finds that a cluster of OECD countries that might be called "numerically flexible" does in fact demonstrate good labour market results: employment rates overall and rates for relevant groups (young/female/older) are higher and unemployment is lower than in countries with less flexibility as measured by employment tenure and tenure distribution.
