Abstract: The aspect of worksharing on which this paper concentrates concerns an increase in the firm's workforce offset by a reduction in average working hours. Emphasis is given to the effect of relative factor prices on worksharing within a model structure which includes the capital stock and worker productivity as endogenous inputs. Factor prices include all the main categories of wage and non-wage labour payments as well as the user cost of capital. Special attention is given to the role of non-wages, both quasi-fixed and variable. An analysis of the effects of marginal employment subsidies on worksharing is also considered with reference to the French 'solidarity contracts'.
