Abstract [en]

We construct a multi-country employer-employeedatato examinethe consequences of employment protection. We identify the effects by comparing workerexit rates between units of the same firm that operate in two countries that have different seniority rules. The results showthat last-in-first-out rules reduce dismissals of older, more senior workers,especially in shrinking multinational firms,and increase their bargaining power,resulting in a steeper seniority-wage profile
