Benefit Sanctions and Unemployment

Benefit Sanctions and Unemployment. This paper investigates the effectiveness of benefit sanctions in reducing unemployment duration. Data from the Swiss labor market allow researchers to make a distinction between the effect of a warning that a person is not complying with eligibility requirements and the effect of the actual enforcement of a benefit sanction. Rafael Lalive, Jan C. van Ours and Josef Zweimuller find that both warning and enforcement have a positive effect on the exit rate out of unemployment. "The Effect of Benefit Sanctions on the Duration of Unemployment"is published by theInstitute for Labour Studies.
