Abstract:

We compare the effects of relatively liberal regulations on the use of temporary employment in Sweden and more restrictive rules in Norway.

We find not only that temporary work may be a stepping stone out of unemployment but also that fixed-term employees are exposed to significant risks of long-term marginalization.

Moreover, fixed-term employees in Sweden face greater risks of long-run unemployment and low earnings compared to those in Norway.
