About the event

Dr Todd Morris will be presenting on Graying and staying on the job: The welfare implications of employment protection for older workers as part of e61 Institute’s Lounge Sessions.

Authors: Todd Morris, Benoit Dostie

Abstract

We study the welfare implications of employment protection for older workers, exploiting recent bans on mandatory retirement across Canadian provinces. Using linked employer-employee tax data, we show that the bans cause large and similar reductions in job separation rates and retirement hazards at age 65, with further reductions at higher ages. The effects vary substantially across industries and firms, and around two-fifths of the adjustments occur between ban announcement and implementation dates. We find no evidence that the demand for older workers falls, but the welfare effects are mediated by spill overs on savings behaviour, workplace injuries, and spousal retirement timing.

About the presenter

Todd Morris is a Lecturer at the University of Queensland. He obtained his PhD from the University of Melbourne in 2020 and had research positions at the Max Planck Institute for Social Law and Social Policy from 2019 to 2021 and HEC Montréal from 2022 to 2023. His main research interests are in empirical public and labor economics. A unifying theme to his research is the causal evaluation of government policies, often related to retirement. His research uses high-quality administrative data and has been published in the Journal of Public Economics and the American Economic Journal: Economic Policy.

About the event

Subject and Abstract to be advised

 

Bio

My research interests lie in the intersection of Bayesian statistics, econometrics and development economics. I most often do applied econometrics aimed at measuring generalisability and quantifying uncertainty around our knowledge base in development economics and economics more broadly.  I focus on Bayesian modelling of treatment effect heterogeneity at multiple levels within data sets and literatures.
