Labor policy: we must look at the evidence, by Miguel Jaramillo

“We need a system that provides flexibility, decriminalizes dismissal and protects workers, not jobs”. Miguel Jaramillo, Executive Director at GRADE, shares his thoughts in El Comercio on effects of the contract reform promoted by the TC (Peruvian Constitutional Court) over the decisions regarding the type of contract used in the labor market and its consequences on workers’ wellbeing variables. According to Miguel, the reform was established with the aim of increasing protection for workers, but ended up having the opposite effect: workers are now less protected due to the reform.
