Per Skedinger's research focuses on institutions on the labour market and their impact on different labour market outcomes. In a number of projects, he has investigated the effects of collective-agreement-regulated minimum wages on the employment in various low-wage occupations and among refugee immigrants.

He has also studied how employment protection legislation affects how the labour market functions. In one of these projects, the connection between order regulations and staff turnover was investigated by studying multinational companies that have operations both in Sweden, where this order is legislated, and in Finland, where no such legislation exists.

Another field of research deals with the effects of labour market policy measures, particularly among youth and disabled persons. Furthermore, Skedinger has analysed the effects of different taxes; how a lowered payroll tax can affect youth employment, and also what impact taxation of capital gains has on the mobility on the housing market.
