This paper studies how training vouchers increase the employment prospects of women with interrupted employment histories.

The integration of refugees in host countries' labor markets is complicated by structural barriers, missing formal qualifications, and language deficiencies. This leads to widespread concern that refugees may end up in informal and precarious employment relationships. Empirical evidence on the prevalence of unregistered work is missing, however, du...
Article
We conduct a field experiment with sellers of home improvement services on two German online markets. We take the role of consumers and vary whether we request an invoice for the delivery of the service. In a market that allows anyone to sell anonymously, a willingness to evade is prevalent. In a market that keeps track of credentials, sellers are...

We study the identification of channels of policy reforms with multiple treatments and different types of selection for each treatment. We disentangle reform effects into policy effects, selection effects, and time effects under the assumption of conditional independence, common trends, and an additional exclusion restriction on the non-treated. Fu...

Sales of services to consumers provide fertile ground for collaborative tax evasion. Little is known about the phenomenon. We conduct a field experiment with 2,900 businesses in Germany. We take the role of consumers and vary if we request an invoice for the delivery of a service. We find that 56% of businesses approach consumers with the intention...

Article
Participation in intensive training programs for the unemployed in Germany is allocated by awarding training vouchers. Using rich administrative data for all vouchers and actual program participation, the authors provide first estimates of the short-run and long-run employment and earnings effects of receiving a training voucher award based on a se...
Article
This paper analyzes how the policy style of local employment agencies is correlated with the award intensity of training vouchers for the unemployed—an important instrument of Active Labor Market Policy (ALMP) in Germany. We define the policy style of agencies on the basis of caseworkers’ and managers’ assessments regarding the voucher system and i...
Article
In 2003, Germany moved from a system in which participants in training programs for the unemployed are assigned by caseworkers to an allocation system using vouchers. Based on the rich administrative data for all vouchers and on actual program participation, we provide inverse probability weighting and ordinary least squares estimates of the employ...

"Further training is one of the most important instrument of Active Labor Market Policy (ALMP) in Germany. It was strongly affected by the Hartz-Reforms, i.e. the implementation of training vouchers for the unemployed and the introduction of a twostage certification and quality management process to ensure transparency and high quality of training...
Article
This study evaluates the provision of training vouchers to the unem-ployed. Since 2003 all long-term public sponsored training programs in Germany are assigned through a voucher system. The present paper is the first to study the labor market outcomes of being awarded with such a voucher. We find positive effects on employment and earnings after a...
