Four essays on the impact of selected institutions on individual labor market outcomes


"The overriding purpose of this dissertation was to shed light on the effectiveness of four important institutions of labor market policy with respect to employment, earnings, and well-being. Against the background of an aging society and shrinking labor force participation rates - problems that will show their true dimension in the coming decades - these institutions might prove relevant to counteract these challenges. In particular, I focused on a deregulation of the temporary agency sector, further training subsidies targeted at older and low-skilled workers, and the German institution responsible for integrating unemployed workers. Thereby, this dissertation complements the literature on the evaluation of subsidized further training for employed workers, on the impact of deregulations of flexible employment, and on the happiness of flexible workers.
