Social policies, market structures, and employment

Field Director: Charles Bellemare (Laval University)

Research in this field seeks to understand the impact of public policies on the labour market. More specifically, it looks at: individual allocation of time of work, domestic activities, and leisure; the impact of social programs on transitions between employment, unemployment, and inactivity with regard to the labour market; length of stays in social welfare programs; under-the-table work; the effect of taxation and social transfers on household behaviours; comparisons of intra- and inter-familial welfare; the role of information and contracts, including job seniority, remuneration practices, effects of hiring and layoff costs, and the relation between salary strategies and workers' productivity; cyclical aspects of the creation and loss of jobs (by sectors) and workforce retention in periods of recession; imperfect competition between firms and job demand; industrial organization; and matching new technologies with the workforce.
