Liste di Mobilità (LM) is an Italian labour market programme targeted to dismissed workers. It combines an active component for all dismissed workers and a passive one to which only workers dismissed by firms with at least 16 employees are entitled; besides, 50% of the residual passive component the worker would have received had s/he remained unemployed is transferred to any firm hiring him/her from the LM. Exploiting a unique panel data set, we identify the causal effect of being eligible for the latter mixed passive and active component on short to mid-run labour market outcomes, via a fuzzy Regression Discontinuity Design. We validate the design by a set of over-identification tests. We find evidence of a negative effect of this component of the program on the short- to mid-run reemployment probability even if it is robust to alternative specification of the estimator only for middle-age women.
Keywords: Labour market policies, Regression discontinuity design, Unemployment subsidy, Wage subsidy.
