This chapter examines labour market regulation in Germany. It argues that there is no clear evidence to support claims that labour laws reduced the flexibility of the labour market. Although deregulation did not yield positive employment effects, neither did it have the destructive effects claimed by opponents. The relaxation of requirements for fixed-term contracts neither boosted employment nor destroyed social cohesion.

Keywords:   Germany, labour market regulation, deregulation, unemployment
