  • Poaching and Firm-Sponsored Training
    • Authors: Jens Mohrenweiser; Thomas Zwick, Uschi Backes-Gellner
      Abstract: A series of seminal papers argues that poaching hampers company-sponsored general training. Empirically, however, the existence and extent of poaching remain open questions. We provide a novel empirical strategy to identify poaching. We find that only few apprenticeship training firms in Germany are ‘poaching victims’ or ‘poaching raiders’. Victims are more likely to be in a temporary downturn and raiders are more likely to be growing. Victims hardly change their training strategy after poaching and poaching seems be a transitory event. This is an important result for countries that intend to introduce apprenticeship-type training and need to convince firms to participate in training.

  • The Earnings Effect of Sexual Orientation: British Evidence from
           Worker-Firm Matched Data
    • Authors: Jing Wang; Morley Gunderson, David Wicks
      Abstract: Using the British Workplace Employment Relations Study (WERS) with its preferred self-identified measure of sexual orientation as well as its organizational-level variables, we find that gay men earn about the same as heterosexual men and lesbians earn significantly more than heterosexual women. Working in an organization with a diversity and equity management (DEM) policy generally has a positive effect on the earnings of gay men and lesbians, especially if they are single. Implications for theories of diversity management, discrimination and market versus household production are discussed.

  • A Cross-Country Comparison of Gender Differences in Job-Related Training:
           The Role of Working Hours and the Household Context
    • Authors: Christina Boll; Elisabeth Bublitz
      Abstract: Theory suggests that in a partnership, the individual with the lower working hours and earnings position should exhibit lower training participation rates. Since women are more likely to match this description, we investigate whether systematic group differences in earnings position and working hours explain gender variation. Across all countries, male workers are unaffected by their earnings position. For female workers in Germany, not Italy or the Netherlands, working part-time instead of full-time corresponds with a decrease in course length by 5.5 hours. Regarding German part- (full-)time employed women, single earners train 5.6 (2.9) hours more than secondary earners.

  • The Layering of Meso-Level Institutional Effects on Employment Systems in
    • Authors: Jonathan Morris; Rick Delbridge, Takahiro Endo
      Abstract: Japan's corporate governance and employment relations systems have been under considerable pressures to reform towards a more Anglo-American model, against a back-drop of intensified global competition and slow economic growth over two ‘lost’ decades. But what is the relationship between these systems, and specifically, how does corporate governance structure condition employment relations practice' This paper adopts the ‘Systems, Society, Dominance and Corporate (SSDC) effects’ framework in order to contextualize and evaluate the outcomes of these pressures, particularly in the period following the 2007–2008 global financial crisis. It reports case study data from various parts of the Japanese economy drawn from a series of firm-based interviews and a variety of secondary sources. It is argued that there has been a strong degree of continuity in certain employment practices, such as lifetime employment, even in relatively new high technology firms, but that the pattern for other practices, such as seniority-based pay, is more mixed with increasing differentiation between industries and individual organizations. We articulate a layered assessment of the varying SSDC effects at play in corporate Japan. This differentiation across industries and organizations is a function both of strategic choice (corporate effects) and also the increasing variation in the meso-level institutional pressures that are experienced at organizational level; that is, the differentiation in the sources and nature of dominance effects that are relevant.

  • Profit-Sharing and Wages: An Empirical Analysis Using French Data between
           2000 and 2007
    • Authors: Noélie Delahaie; Richard Duhautois
      Abstract: Economic theory presents different arguments about how profit-sharing may affect wages. First, profit-sharing may substitute for the base wage. Second, profit-sharing can be interpreted as an ‘efficiency wage’ that adds to the base wage and increases total compensation. The existing empirical literature has not determined which of these arguments is valid. This article attempts to address this issue for France between 2000 and 2007. Based on a difference-in-differences selection model, we show that bonuses in firms adopting profit-sharing are too small to conclude whether it substitutes for or complements the base wage. While base wage levels are generally higher among profit-sharing firms, changes in the base wage over this period are lower among firms that have had profit-sharing for a number of years.

  • Company Closures and the Erosion of the Political Centre: Evidence from
    • Authors: Nils Braakmann
      Abstract: This article investigates the link between company closures and political preferences using German panel data. I first show that job loss due to a company closure leads to similar adverse labor market outcomes as those found in other countries. I then show that men become less likely to identify with political parties and mainstream parties in particular, while women become less interested in politics. Effects are stronger for individuals who see job creation and protection as a state responsibility and for lower skilled workers, but do not vary with the routine intensity or offshorability of the former job.

  • Union Renewal and Workplace Greening — Three Case Studies
    • Authors: Tom Farnhill
      Abstract: This article evaluates the renewal potential of three unions’ workplace greening agendas in three large workplaces. The cases suggest the agenda is easy to initiate with members and employers and has tangible environmental benefits but is labour intensive and difficult to sustain beyond focusing events. There is limited evidence that the agenda attracts new members but stronger evidence that it attracts new activists. Although facilitative of partnership, unions are mainly cast as environmental watchdogs and trouble-shooters. The findings suggest that even timely, popular, developmental agendas, conducive to partnership, can have only a moderate effect on union renewal and must be consciously configured to do so properly.

  • Paradox Lost: The Disappearing Female Job Satisfaction Premium
    • Authors: Colin P. Green; John S. Heywood, Parvinder Kler, Gareth Leeves
      Abstract: Using the original data source of Clark, we show that over the last two decades the female satisfaction gap he documented has vanished. This reflects a strong secular decline in female job satisfaction. This decline happened both because younger women became less satisfied as they aged, and because new female workers entered with lower job satisfaction than their early 1990s peers. Decompositions make clear that the decline does not reflect changing job characteristics for women but rather their increasingly less favourable evaluation of job characteristics. These findings fit with the suggestion that women in the early 1990s had a gap between their labour market expectations and actual experience that has since closed and that the gender satisfaction gap has vanished as a consequence.

  • Extra-Institutional Changes under Pressure from Posting
    • Authors: Jens Arnholtz; Søren Kaj Andersen
      Abstract: The posting of workers has become a key topic in debates about how national labour relations respond to pressures from EU market making. While most prior studies have shown that national employment relations are under pressure from above (via EU regulation) and from below (due to increasing use of posting), the question is whether these pressures will lead to erosion of employment relations or adaptation at the national level. Taking the case of posting in the Danish construction sector, the article shows that, while formal institutions stay the same through minor adaptation, the increasing use of posting has led to changes in the strategies of the social partners, shifts in predominant policy arenas and the appearance of new actors on the regulatory scene. As such, we argue that conflicts regarding posting are driving a process of extra-institutional change.

  • Country of Origin Effects and New Financial Actors: Private Equity
           Investment and Work and Employment Practices of French Firms
    • Authors: Anne Stevenot; Loris Guery, Geoffrey Wood, Chris Brewster
      Abstract: This is a study of the effects of alternative investors on a range of work and employment practices in France, paying specific attention to whether investors are indigenous or not. We use data from a detailed survey of French firms, and set our research in the context of the literature on comparative capitalisms. We find that private equity (PE) investments from abroad are associated with greater job insecurity, less spending on training and lower wages, but French PE investments are not. We explore the reasons behind this variation and the implications for theory and practice.

  • Work in Britain's Informal Economy: Learning from Road-Side Hand Car
    • Authors: Ian Clark; Trevor Colling
      Abstract: The United Kingdom has over 10,000 hand car washes (HCWs). This article examines two research questions: what do HCWs reveal about the informalization of employment' and what is the prospect of regulation of them' Setting HCWs in a theoretical framework shows that they are part of a growing industry which is becoming an increasingly familiar and visible part of the economy, where control of labour costs is a key factor. Employers make a strategic choice to engage precarious and vulnerable, usually migrant, labour securing further competitive advantage at the cost of pronounced labour exploitation and long hours — the tendency towards informalization. Therein a low-cost business model disciplines competition to usurp higher productivity mechanized car washing.

  • Safeguards against Opportunism in Freelance Contracting on the Internet
    • Authors: Andrey Shevchuk; Denis Strebkov
      Abstract: Based on a large sample of 5,756 Russian-speaking freelancers from an international online labour market, this study provides rare quantitative evidence of the external labour market where freelancers act under constant threat of client-side opportunism. We explore how the formalization of agreements, social embeddedness and mode of communication are associated with the incidence of opportunism and further possibilities of resolving problems caused by agreement violations. Social ties and face-to-face contact appear to be better safeguards against opportunism in freelance contracting, which is largely informal. The study has important implications for the debates about non-standard work, online labour markets and job quality in the new economy.

  • How Can New Players Establish Themselves in Highly Institutionalized
           Labour Markets' A Belgian Case Study in the Area of Project-Based Work
    • Authors: Virginie Xhauflair; Benjamin Huybrechts, François Pichault
      Abstract: How can new players seeking to serve nonstandard worker categories (such as project-based workers) establish themselves into labour markets that are highly institutionalized' This paper explores the case of SMart, a Belgian community-based labour market intermediary that successfully developed solutions to better represent the interests of project-based workers and secure their discontinuous careers. Using an organizational legitimacy approach, we find that labour market entry and growth involve different types of boundary-crossing when addressing the needs of workers that do not fit into established categories. However, to justify boundary-crossing, the new player must complement its pragmatic work on delivering new services and tools with conceptual (cognitive) and structural (moral) legitimation work.

  • CSR Participation Committees, Wildcat Strikes and the Sourcing Squeeze in
           Global Supply Chains
    • Authors: Mark Anner
      Abstract: Lead firms in apparel global supply chains are increasingly using social compliance programmes that require worker-management participation committees in their supplier factories. These committees are designed to ensure respect for internationally recognized labour standards, to empower workers, and to reduce labour unrest. However, these committees have remained weak, and in countries such as Vietnam worker unrest remains common. This article argues that this is because lead firms in these CSR programmes are imposing a ‘sourcing squeeze’ on supplier factors by reducing the prices and production times they allot to their suppliers, which undermines efforts by committees to address cost-sensitive issues and overtime violations. At the same time, the sourcing squeeze increases strike leverage, providing workers with a much more effective source of worker voice.

  • The Political Effects of Accounting Normalization on Trade Unions: An
           Analysis of Financial Transparency Reform in France
    • Authors: Rémi Bourguignon; Karel Yon
      Abstract: The law of 20 August 2008 reformed the representativeness of French unions by imposing an obligation for ‘financial transparency’. Building on exploratory research, we address the question of the organizational and political effects of the new regulation, which point to a traditional debate in union democracy studies: how do administrative and representative rationalities combine within trade union organizations' Drawing on interviews with union leaders and finance officers at various levels in three major labour confederations (CGT, CFDT and CGT-FO), we describe the different ways unionists have received the new accounting requirements and translated them into organizational practices and norms. Going beyond the traditional theses of compatibility and colonization, we make use of the body of work in critical legal and management studies to develop an endogenous approach of the relationships between trade unions and accounting management.

  • Are There Unexplained Financial Rewards for the Snakes in Suits' A
           Labour Market Analysis of the Dark Triad of Personality
    • Authors: Joanne Kathryn Lindley
      Abstract: The Big Five personality test is used to generate psychopathy, narcissism and Machiavellianism scores using a large UK individual level micro dataset. These scores show that high levels of narcissism and Machiavellianism can be associated with a higher incidence of employment in managerial occupations, while high levels of psychopathy are related to higher employment in the other services sector. The article finds a wage premium to Machiavellianism that is largest at the 90th percentile, over and above all productivity-related explanations. The average hourly wage increase for a one-point move up the Machiavellianism scale is around 2.1 per cent.

  • Labour Market Dualism and Diversification in Japan
    • Authors: Hiroaki Richard Watanabe
      Abstract: The Japanese labour market has been regarded as ‘dualistic’ in terms of employment status (regular vs non-regular). While it is true, this perspective misses recent changes in regular employment in terms of labour flexibility. The government has attempted labour market deregulation since the 1990s to increase the flexibility of not only non-regular but also regular employment, and the labour market has become more diversified. Labour unions lack power resources to resist these neoliberal changes, however, because of their insufficient access to policy-making, low union density and a lack of solidarity against the background of economic stagnation and competition under globalization.

  • Why Do Workers with Disabilities Earn Less' Occupational Job
           Requirements and Disability Discrimination
    • Authors: Douglas Kruse; Lisa Schur, Sean Rogers, Mason Ameri
      Abstract: We analyse competing explanations for the lower pay of employees with disabilities, using 2008–2014 data from the American Community Survey matched to O*Net data on occupational job requirements. The results indicate that only part of the disability pay gap is due to productivity-related job requirements. The remaining pay gap — experienced by employees whose impairments should not limit their productivity — reflects potential discrimination. The discrimination-related pay gaps appear to be smallest and possibly non-existent for women and men with hearing impairments, and largest for those with cognitive and mobility impairments. Overall the results indicate that discrimination is likely to remain an influence on the pay of many workers with disabilities.

  • Government Regulation of International Corporate Social Responsibility in
           the US and the UK: How Domestic Institutions Shape Mandatory and
           Supportive Initiatives
    • Authors: Jette Steen Knudsen
      Abstract: While most scholarship on corporate social responsibility (CSR) focuses on company-level CSR initiatives, it increasingly also examines government programs for CSR. However, research on how governments contribute to CSR has mainly focused on domestic and not international CSR challenges. This literature also does not specify whether governments shape CSR through mandatory regulation or supportive initiatives. This article adopts a process-tracing approach to determine how governments regulate international CSR. It demonstrates that the legal and political systems in the liberal market economies of the UK and the US lead to different forms of public CSR regulation — notably in the areas of labour standards in apparel and tax transparency in extractives. The UK government has been more likely to support bottom-up collaborative multi-stakeholder initiatives, whereas the US government has favoured top-down mandatory regulation.

  • An Empirical Analysis of the Relationship between Employee Ownership and
           Employment Stability in the US: 1999–2011
    • Authors: Fidan Ana Kurtulus; Douglas Kruse
      Abstract: Do firms with employee ownership (EO) programs exhibit greater employment stability in the face of economic downturns' In particular, are firms with EO programs less likely to lay off workers during negative shocks' In this article, we examine the relationship between EO programs and employment stability in the United States using longitudinal Form 5500-CompuStat matched data on the universe of publicly traded companies during 1999–2011. We examine how firms with EO programs weathered the recessions of 2001 and 2008 in terms of employment stability relative to firms without EO programs, and also whether such firms were less likely to lay off workers when faced with negative shocks more broadly. In our econometric analyses, we use a rich array of measures of EO at firms, including the presence of EO stock in pension plans, the presence of employee stock ownership plans (ESOPs), the value of EO stock per employee, the share of the firm owned by employees, the share of workers at the firm participating in EO and the share of workers at the firm participating in ESOPs. We also consider both economy-wide negative shock measures (increases in the unemployment rate, declines in the employment-to-population ratio) and firm-specific negative shock measures (declines in firm sales, declines in firm stock price). Our results indicate that EO firms exhibit greater employment stability in the face of economy-wide and firm-specific negative shocks.

  • Positive Action Towards Gender Equality: Evidence from the Athena SWAN
           Charter in UK Medical Schools
    • Authors: Ian Gregory-Smith
      Abstract: This article provides evidence on the effectiveness of voluntary positive action in addressing inequality between female and male careers. The setting is UK medical schools where two natural experiments are exploited. The first is the introduction of the Athena SWAN charter in 2005, whereby 12 UK universities signed up to the principles of the charter. The second is the announcement in 2011 by the National Institute for Health Research to only shortlist medical schools with a ‘silver’ Athena SWAN award for certain research grants. This second change potentially impacts schools that are further away from silver status more than those that were already close in 2011. While there is a marked improvement of women succeeding in medical schools between 2004 and 2013, early Athena SWAN adopters have not increased female participation by more than other schools whose institution signed up later. In addition, tying funding to Athena SWAN silver status has yet to have an impact on female careers, although medical schools have invested in efforts to achieve silver status. Together, these results emphasize the challenges associated with addressing gender equality through voluntary self-regulation.

  • Short-Time Work and Employment Stability: Evidence from a Policy Change
    • Authors: José M. Arranz; Carlos García-Serrano, Virginia Hernanz
      Abstract: This paper investigates whether short-time work (STW) programmes achieve their stated goal of being devices intended to preserve jobs and keep workers employed in times of crisis. Our identification strategy exploits a change in the financial incentives provided to employers and employees for the temporary suspension of work contracts or the reduction of working time. We use longitudinal administrative data and estimate difference-in-differences regressions and instrumental variable bivariate probit models with endogenous covariates, which try to take account of the potential endogeneity of participation in STW. Our results suggest that discretionary policy changes in the incentives of STW schemes can be effective in the short run but they lose their ability when the decline in demand and the lack of work are more permanent.

  • Do Employee-Owned Firms Produce More Positive Employee Behavioural
           Outcomes' If Not Why Not' A British-Spanish Comparative Analysis
    • Authors: Imanol Basterretxea; John Storey
      Abstract: Whether ‘employee ownership’ takes the form of worker cooperatives, co-ownership or simply employee share ownership plans, there are normally high expectations that a range of positive outcomes will result. Yet many empirically based studies tend to find a much more complex picture. An influential segment of that empirical literature has posited the need for a number of mutually reinforcing workforce management components to be in place alongside co-ownership. Drawing on detailed case research in two large and successful co-owned retailers in Spain and Britain this paper examines the role of these wider elements supporting employee ownership. We find that employee ownership can be linked to higher productivity and lower employee turnover, while at the same time being linked to higher absenteeism and mixed effects on attitudes. Expectations held by managers and employees are higher; these expectations are not always fully met. The role of managers was also found to be crucial.

  • When Industrial Democracy Meets Corporate Social Responsibility — A
           Comparison of the Bangladesh Accord and Alliance as Responses to the Rana
           Plaza Disaster
    • Authors: Jimmy Donaghey; Juliane Reinecke
      Abstract: Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Industrial Democracy are two paradigmatic approaches to transnational labour governance. They differ considerably with regard to the role accorded to the representation of labour. CSR tends to view workers as passive recipients of corporate-led initiatives, with little attention paid to the role of unions. Industrial Democracy centres on labour involvement: those affected by governance need to be part of it. Examining the Bangladesh Accord and Alliance as governance responses to the 2013 Rana Plaza disaster, this article offers a comparative perspective of how Industrial Democracy-oriented and CSR-oriented initiatives translate into differences in implementation. The article highlights that while CSR can foster effective problem-solving in the short run, Industrial Democracy is necessary to build governance capacities involving workers in the long run.

  • The Effect of Corporate Social Responsibility on Gender Diversity in the
           Workplace: Econometric Evidence from Japan
    • Authors: Takao Kato; Naomi Kodama
      Abstract: Using panel data on corporate social responsibility (CSR) matched with corporate proxy statement data for a large and representative sample of 1,492 publicly traded firms in Japan over 2006–2014, we provide fixed effect estimates on the positive and significant effects on gender diversity of CSR. Such effects are, however, felt only after two to three years. The CSR effects are larger and more significant for firms that adhere more closely to the participatory Japanese management system. Our findings are robust to the inclusion of controls capturing the mediating effects of various work–life balance practices, pointing to the direct impact of CSR on gender diversity.

  • Might Corporate Social Responsibility Hollow Out Support for Public
           Assistance in Europe'
    • Authors: Brian Burgoon; Luc Fransen
      Abstract: This article explores whether private regulatory activity to promote labour and social standards might hollow out traditional public regulations to provide welfare and labour protection at home and abroad. Such exploration has hitherto been frustrated by empirical limitations of measures of private regulatory activity and its implications for public regulation. The present article extends those limits by focusing on how new measures of labour-related private regulation affect attitudes in 27 European polities towards welfare redistribution and for foreign assistance. Our analysis suggests that private-regulatory CSR promoting labour and social standards may directly and indirectly diminish public support for domestic welfare redistribution, but appears to have little effect on support for foreign aid. We see, hence, possible crowding-out only with respect to domestic, not international, assistance.
