Kurzfassung auf Englisch: The paper takes issue with demand-based interpretations of the consequences of
deregulation through temporary employment in Spain. According to demand-based accounts,
partial deregulation has helped to generate and maintain a secondary segment in the Spanish
labour market, in which specific product market conditions generate a need for highly
flexible contracts to perform low-skilled tasks. In contrast to this view, the paper argues that
partial deregulation has also had important segmenting consequences amongst Spanish
professionals, despite the high levels of asset specificity and monitoring costs involved in
their job tasks. Drawing on the analysis of the Spanish Labour Force Survey for the period
1987-1997, the paper presents empirical evidence that shows how, when introduced in a
context of high unemployment and high dismissal costs for the permanent workforce,
temporary contracts can generate a process of polarisation of employment chances within
both manual and professional occupations. The segmenting consequences of partial
deregulation have, therefore, been more severe, pervasive and pernicious than is
acknowledged by demand-based accounts.
