Development of financial markets plays a major role in economic development. The present study estimates the effect of inflation on the relationship between financial development and employment using STR smooth transition regression model in Iran during 1992-2014. The results show that when inflation increases beyond threshold level, quasi-money negative effects on unemployment rate are intensified, and an increase in quasi-money has greater effect on increase in employment. Furthermore, increase in inflation rate and passing threshold level, and increase in capital market volume and domestic credit granted to private sector result in decreasing employment rate. The effect of monetary base on unemployment rate is positive in both regimes, but higher inflation (passing the threshold level of inflation) has intensified the positive effect of monetary base on unemployment rate. In other words, an increase in inflation rate has increased the monetary base, which in turn has reduced the employment level.
