After summarizing the theoretical arguments for and against plant closing legislation, the authors present results of empirical analyses, based on the Bureau of Labor Statistics Survey of Displaced Workers and other data sources, that show that having advance notice appears to reduce the probability that a displaced worker will suffer any spell of unemployment.
Findings discussed in seminars at Cornell University, the National Bureau of Economic Research and the Upjohn Institute and in a paper presented at the American Economic Association meeting, December 1987
