Size-Dependent Labour Regulations and Threshold Effects: The Case of Contract-worker Intensity in Indian Manufacturing

Published By: IGIDR on eSS | Published Date: 01, July

Labour regulations like employment protection legislation in India are size-dependent rules and therefore constitute a basis for threshold effects.
