We examine the effect of labor protection on the recovery of distressed firms. Exploiting the introduction of the New Labor Contract Law in 2008 in China, we show that there is a sharp increase in employment growth and decrease in layoffs in financially distressed firms following the stricter labor regulation. This impact is more pronounced for non-SOEs and for firms located in regions with more labor unrests and higher corporate winning rate in labor disputes. Differentiating employees by education levels, we find that the impact of labor regulation on firms’ employment decisions is mainly driven by the retention of less educated employees. This reduced ability of laying off low-quality labor damages firm performance during financial distress, resulting in a longer recovery time and a lower hazard rate to recover from financial distress. These results are robust to various measures of financial distress, and to an extensive set of robustness tests. Overall, our evidence suggests that the reduced ability to make flexible labor adjustment, due to the stronger labor protection, impedes firms from recovering financial distress.
