Abstract

In establishments with a works council and 200 and more employees, the Works Council Act
requires the paid leave of absence of one works councillor, subjected to collective bargaining
and works agreements. This paper analyses the de-facto distribution of this legal provision and
shows that the paid leave of absence do not sharply increases at the legal threshold of 200
employees. Instead of a step function, we observe a continuous increase of the probability
of paid leave of absence with the number of employees. In particular, a lot of establishments
have a works councillor in paid leave of absence before the legal threshold and a lot of establishments
have no-one far behind the threshold. Contrary, the probability of paid leave of absence
for one works councillor sharply increases at the legal threshold for establishments with
bad relations between management and works council.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
