Abstract: The paper analyses the state of implementation of flexicurity policy components in the NMS and, by using panel regression analysis, estimates the relationship between flexicurity policy components (i.e., employment protection legislation, expenditures for active employment policies, participation in lifelong learning and net replacement rate) and labour productivity and long-term unemployment. The empirical analysis showed that the labour markets in the NMS are, on overall, not more rigid than the labour markets in the EU-15, however problematic remain low expenditure for active labour market policies, education and social protection and low participation in lifelong learning. NMS must, according to the results of the panel linear regression, improve their performance in mentioned areas in order to improve their labour productivity and decrease long-term unemployment.
