Abstract [en]

We examine how speed of automation is affected by different employment

protection regimes - one with lenient and one with stringent regulation. To

assess we examine how occupations shares in the UK, US, Germany and

Spain has changed from 1991-2013. According to our estimates, we find that

the speed, of which high-risk occupations shrink over time, slows down in

countries with a stringent EPL, Germany and Spain, regime relative to

lenient EPL levels, the UK and US.
