Employment Protection Legislation to Promote Quality of Job Creation

The International Labour Organization (ILO) has just published a research brief based on one of the papers authored by Dragos Adascalitei, in which they give some policy recommendations on how to reform labor markets.

An effective system of Employment Protection Legislation (EPL) must balance, among other things, the needs of workers for income and job security with employers' need to adjust the workforce in an increasingly dynamic world of work. Indeed, rather than debating the benefits of more versus less EPL, more attention should be paid to the correct design of EPL, its interaction with other benefits, and its implementation and effective enforcement.
