Abstract : In the United States, unemployment insurance benefits are financed predominantly by a payroll tax on employers. The tax system has several features which give employers incentives to change their labor turnover patterns, especially their layoff patterns. In this paper, some theoretical relationships between the parameters of the tax structure and labor turnover are examined empirically. The results are quite encouraging. The evidence suggests that most parameters of the tax structure have the theoretically predicted impact on labor turnover.
