Supporting people and companies to deal with the COVID-19 virus: Options for an immediate employment and social-policy response

There is an abstract

The COVID19 crisis is challenging people, households and firms in unprecedented ways. The priority is to contain the Pandemic. People’s jobs and livelihoods are at risk because of disrupted supply chains, containment measures and falling demand. There is an immediate need for employment and social policy. Ensuring access to income support for sick and scurvy workers is essential. Elderly relatives are particularly vulnerable as schools are closing and working parents need help with unforeseen care needs. During the last financial and economic crisis, short-time work schemes helped protect jobs and provide relief to struggling companies. Income support is needed by workers who lose their jobs and incomes. Rapid financial support through grants or credits can help companies bridge their liquidity gaps as they suffer from a sharp drop in demand. Many countries in the affected area have introduced or announced bold measures in the last few weeks with a focus on supporting the most vulnerable. This note and accompanying are included policy tableEvidence sharing on the role and effectiveness of policy tools is a part of it

The COVID19 virus is a major challenge to economies and societies The global economy is in danger. The epidemic and protecting people are the things that need to be contained top priority Reinforc

This crisis is different from previous ones and requires a different mix of policy responses. The COVID19 virus has disrupted international supply chains, forcing workers to remain at home because they are sick or have been exposed to a lock down. It is very difficult to address a supply shock with standard monetary and fiscal policy tools. Companies are losing their ability to pay their employees as they are forced to scale back operations. This will put more pressure on companies and their employees as well as on independent workers, as it threatens households’ incomes and reduces household consumption. Governments have to fight the public-health emergency and provide employers and independent workers with the funds they need to survive

The note is the first attempt at setting out the employment and social-policy tools that governments can use to counter the COVID19 crisis. Many of these measures are already being taken by countries around the world, others will follow as the situation changes over the coming days and weeks. This brief is accompanied by a table of policy responses Available online, Which will be continually updated.

Workers are exposed to the COVID19 virus in the workplace

Many countries are taking measures Limit physical interaction. The first focus was on the daily commute and the workplace, given that public transportation can often gather large numbers of people and increase their risk of contracting and spreading the COVID19 virus

  • Small and medium-sized enterprises are provided financial and non-financial assistance to help them develop teleworking capacity and effective teleworking routines

  • Encouraging employers to inform their members of the benefits of telework

  • Collaborating with technology companies to give small and medium-sized businesses and self-employed access to communication and sharing tools

  • Encouraging unions and employers to negotiate guidelines to reduce workers exposure in places where telework is not possible

Governments and employers have encouraged prolongingteleworking ” It is possible in many places with the right equipment. Over the past decade or so, teleworking has become more and more common. It is in the employers’ interest to reduce their employees’ exposure to the virus to limit their sickness-related absences and maintain operations. teleworking can be used where a minimum staff presence is required. Employers can change work routines to limit contact It’s possible that it’s possible that it’s possible that it’s possible that it’s possible that it’s possible that it’s possible that it’s possible that it’s possible that it’s possible that it’s possible that it’s Office sharing and larger meetings are reduced. In the care, transport and retail industries, the energy sector and emergency services, workers will always need to be present

In many countries, there are regulations permitting teleworking, but sometimes these are quite restrictive and may require a collective bargaining agreement Ex ante Social partners agreeing. . It can be made easier. Italy simplified the procedure for teleworking, for the next six months, companies and employees can arrange teleworking without a written agreement and at the employee’s place of choice. Social partners have signed an agreement to reduce the risk of workers contracting the COVID19 virus in the workplace

Different types of governments are provided Small and medium-sized enterprises are supportedTo help them quickly develop teleworking capacities Financial assistance to purchase equipment and support the development of teleworking policies are provided. Firms in Japan can now receive a subsidy of 50% towards the cost of installing telework facilities. The Italian Ministry of Innovation has set up a website that gives an overview of the various available web-based tools that allow remote work and remote is a website that is associated with the Solidarieta digitale). Some large tech companies, including Amazon Web Services, give temporary free access to some of their communication and sharing tools to companies and workers

Poor in some countries and some groups There are housing conditions It can make teleworking difficult for people. In the case of infectious diseases, overcrowding can be problematic as it prevents physical distance and facilitates the spread of the disease when a household member gets sick. In Mexico, Poland, and the Slovak Republic, more than a quarter of households are overcrowded. Less than half of households in Turkey and Mexico have access to a computer at home, while up to a quarter of households in ten countries do not

Income replacement for sick workers and their families

There is paid sick leave It is a crucial tool for addressing the economic impact of the COVID19 crisis. It can provide some income continuity for workers who are unable to work because they have been diagnosed with COVID19 or have to self-isolated. Ensuring that sick workers can afford to stay at home until they are no longer contagious helps to slow the spread of the virus

  • Extending paid sick leave coverage to self-employed workers

  • Extending the duration of paid sick leave or waiving waiting periods is one way to align them with medical recommendations

  • Eliminating the need for medical certification to access paid sick leave is a way to adapt reporting requirements

Workers in most countries are given financial compensation when they are on sick leave. The initial period is usually covered by the employerIn most countries of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, wage payment can be continued for up to 15 days It’s possible that it’s possible that it’s possible that it’s possible that it’s possible that it’s possible that it’s possible that it’s possible that it’s possible that it’s possible that it’s possible that it’s In Austria, Germany, Italy, and the Netherlands. Almost all of the countries of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development provide It was publicly paid Income support for sick workers can be extended for up to one year in many countries, and even longer in some. In countries like the Netherlands and Norway, the level of compensation during sick leave is usually 50% or more of the last wage. In countries with generous systems, total spending on paid sick leave, including employer payments and public sickness benefit, can be as high as 3% of total employee compensation The figure is a representation of a figure. 1)

Data on private spending is likely to be less than information on budgetary allocations. This holds for data on non-mandatory employer- provided sick pay, as stipulated in individual employment contracts and/or in enterprise or other collective labour agreements. Voluntary employer-provided sick pay is not subject to reporting requirements and estimates of their magnitude may not be available on a comprehensive basis. Estimates presented here understate the true extent of privately provided sick pay and by extension total spending on sick pay in countries where workers rely on employer-supplied benefits, as for example in Canada and the United States

The calculation is based on the social expenditure database

In some countries, sick- leave compensation is only a small portion of the previous wage and is shorter than the recommended period of self-isolation for people with COVID19 symptoms. Korea and the United States do not have statutory obligations for employers to continue wage payments in case of illness and they do not provide for statutory public sickness benefits TheOECD, 2018,

The Bureau of Labor Statistics. The United States introduced two weeks of paid sick leave for workers who have been affected by the COVID19 virus, which will be paid by employers but be fully reimbursed by the federal government

Access to paid sick leave is limited for non-standard workers in many countries. Employees on short-time contracts can have lower coverage if they rely on voluntary employer provisions. These gaps are a concern when health risks are elevated for these groups because of the service sector’s higher exposure to infections. Casual and self-employed workers in Australia are not entitled to sick pay. Public provisions are affected by gaps, especially for self-employed workers The figure is a representation of a figure. 2) . In the Netherlands, they don’t have to be insured against temporary income loss caused by illness, but only a small percentage of them do. They can get an income supplement, up to the level of regular social assistance or a zero-interest loan. Statutory sickness insurance is not compulsory for self-employed workers in Italy. The maximum sickness benefit durations for temporary workers are usually shorter than for permanent workers because the benefit duration is usually limited by the end of the temporary contract. The benefit duration for temporary workers in Italy depends on days worked in the past year, which is not the case for permanent employees

Sickness benefit coverage is mandatory for self-employed workers with incomes over a certain minimum in some countries. For self-employed people, the maximum entitlement period may be shorter than for employees

Governments have been replacing incomes for sick workers during the COVID19 crisis. The waiting period for self-employed workers was eliminated by Portugal. The United Kingdom will no longer have a three-day waiting period for Statutory pay and a one-week waiting period for an allowance. Austrian policy is very strict about not going to a doctor or hospital to spread the virus, so people who may have COVID19 are not required to send a sickness certificate. Employers can get their wages reimbursed after ten days of absence if they have to continue paying for up to 12 weeks of normal sick leave. Self-employed people in Germany can claim an income replacement benefit if they have the same earnings in the previous year as they did in the previous year

The private sector has been taking action. Some companies give their employees paid sick leave to allow them to stay home if they feel ill

Workers who cannot work from home are provided with income replacement

In order to contain the spread of the COVID19 virus, most of the countries in the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development have introduced scruple requirements for workers returning from high-risk countries or people who have been in close contact with people who show symptoms. A number of countries in the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development are on lock down. Some workers can work while being isolated at home, but many cannot

  • Complying with regulations to ensure that workers with scurvy have access to paid sick leave

  • Employers are being fined if they give sick leave to workers

The legal situation Workers in mandated quasy who can’t work from home It varies across countries. Workers who are scurried are covered by sick pay. In Austria and Germany, workers who are not allowed to work from home are treated as sick leave and still receive their salary. In the Netherlands, workers who are scurried can still receive their usual pay from their employer, though it depends on the reason for the scurried and the type of employment contract. Statutory sick pay will be made available to all workers who are advised to self-isolated because of the COVID19 virus. In some countries, workers who are not allowed to work from home may be covered by short-time work schemes It is force majeure

Employers in Germany can claim back wage payments if they are not working, because countries have been supporting them in the face of high costs. The situation in Austria is similar to that in other countries. The United Kingdom has decided that companies with fewer than 250 employees can claim refunds for statutory sick pay paid to staff off work because of COVID19 for a period of up to 14 days. Sickness benefits paid by social security will be equivalent to wages for workers who are scurried in Portugal

The self-employed face more income uncertainty if they have to suck up their own money. Income replacement for the self-employed is not limited to those with a justified reason for being sick

Helping workers deal with unforeseen care needs

The large-scale closing of schools and facilities in an increasing number of countries can cause difficulties for working parents who have to arrange care during the day. A further complicating factor is that grandparents are vulnerable and need to reduce close contact with children and others

  • Public daycare is available for working parents in essential services, such as health care, public utilities and emergency services

  • Workers who need to take leave will be offered financial support

  • Employers who give workers paid leave get financial subsidies

  • Figuring out how to fit telework requirements into workers’ caring responsibilities

Teleworking full office hours can be very difficult for families with young children, and for couples where only one partner can telework. Lower-paid occupations are less likely to be able to work from home The 2016 figures from theOECD, But. External care solutions are not available where you can afford them

Working parents may be able to request leave from work. They might be able to use statutory annual leave in the short term, but it is often at the discretion of the employer. In the United Kingdom, workers must give their employers notice before they leave and employers can refuse to give leave at certain times. Workers in the United States have no entitlement to paid annual leave

Parents have the right to take additional time off In the case of school/facility closing, it is often unclear. Most of the countries in the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development give employees the right to leave to care for sick or injured children The 2020 edition of theOECD. In some countries, parents have the right to take a leave in case of unforeseen emergencies. Emergency leave entitlements will apply in cases of school or daycare facility closings. These rights can only be as far as they are extendable It was not paid Leave. The decision to continue the salary is usually left to the employer. Many parents can’t afford to take leave for long. In Austria, Germany and the Slovak Republic, these leaves are time-limited, while in others, it is not clear how long these rights would last

Some countries are implementing Emergency measures to help working parents In cases of school closings. . In countries where schools and facilities have been closed, some facilities still have staff to look after children. In France, child care facilities can host up to 10 children, and child care workers can receive up to 6 children instead of 3. The Netherlands has a list of essential occupations that include public transport, food production, transport and distribution, transportation of fuels, waste management, the media, police and the armed forces

The countries are also offering Financial support to help with the costs of care. In Italy, working parents with children below 12 can take 15 days of leave, paid at 50% of the salary or not, and parents with children above 12 can take 15 days of leave. They can get a voucher for 600 for medical workers for alternative care. Both employees and self-employed can take advantage of this possibility. If no alternative care or work can be found, parents who are impacted by school closings will be entitled to paid sick leave. Portugal has a program that gives a benefit of two-thirds of a parent’s monthly salary to parents with children below the age of 12 who cannot work from home and who have to attend school. Self-employed workers can get a third of their take- home pay

A further measure is also included FinancialEmployers who give workers paid leave are supported. The Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare in Japan has announced a subsidy to firms that establish their own paid- leave systems for workers who are affected by school closings. Employers will be compensated for the continued payment of salaries even though workers are on leave up to a limit of JPY 8 330 per person per day

Workers with elderly dependents may need to take time off. Workers in Austria, Germany, Korea, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom have the right to take leave to care for their parents or adult relatives with a serious or critical illness. It is not clear whether these rights apply to elderly relatives with mild symptoms or those who are self-isolating. Workers are often required to give notice before taking leave if a relative needs urgent care, which may not be practical

Ensuring workers’ jobs and the viability of firms

Firms need to take immediate measures to secure jobs and incomes and give them flexibility to quickly recruit replacements if necessary, in light of the enormous challenge that firms are facing in dealing with a combined supply and demand shock

Positive role is an important lesson learned from the 2008 global financial crisis Short-time work schemes are used The social and economic costs of major economic crises can be mitigated The 2010 edition of theOECD; The year of; The year of. The schemes aim to keep jobs at firms that experience a drop in demand. They provide public income support to workers who have been temporarily laid off or who have been reduced in hours, and who are still employed by the firm. Employers can hold on to workers talent and experience and ramp up production once economic conditions improve

  • Short-time work schemes are introducing relaxing participation and conditionality requirements

  • It is easier to access online information for employers

  • Promoting online training to employees during the downturn

  • Enhancing the recruitment of staff to replace sick workers

The main priority is to get the word out about the product. This requires clear and easily accessible online information on how to use the schemes

A number of countries have taken steps to expand their borders. Germany simplified access Arz. Firms can now request support if 10% of their workforce is affected by work hours being cut. The labour agency will now cover 100% of social insurance contributions for lost work hours, as well as compensate for the difference in net earnings due to reduced hours. When only half of social insurance contributions were subsidized, employers had to cover the other half. Germany also extended Arz Pre-empting greater labour market segments is what it is intended to cover

Italy has extended its short-time workGuadagni is called the Cassa Integrazione) For up to 9 weeks, to all sectors and companies. . Japan relaxed the requirement of its short-time work scheme Employment adjustment subsidies The word is used in the sense of the wordEAS. One of the conditions for the EAS was a 10% reduction of production for more than three months, but now this period has been reduced to only one month. In regions in the state of emergency, this requirement is considered as satisfied regardless of firms production or sales, and non-standard workers are also covered

It is force majeurePeople placed in a quarantine or companies affected by an epidemic are covered

During the period of interruption, companies could promote Online training is being taken up France is encouraging firms to use a special training subsidy The FNE Formation is found in the Northeastern part of the United StatesInstead of traditional STW The FNE Formation is found in the Northeastern part of the United States It was originally developed for companies that needed to upskill their workforce

France and Italy have introduced limitations to economic dismissals to make companies use expanded STW schemes instead of laying off workers. Measures like these can help workers in a time of strong anxiety, limit opportunists who may use the crisis as an excuse to dismiss difficult workers and avoid the social stigma of being fired. If access to the STW schemes for firms turns out to be incomplete, impractical or too costly, they may lead to a few company bankruptcies. If the epidemic is not quickly ended, the limitations to economic dismissals may be put in place that will slow down the recovery. Some workers may get locked in unviable companies instead of being taken care of by public employment services that could offer re-training and other support

The rapidly rising count of workers who are sick, scurried or absent from work to care for their children also risks disrupting the functioning of essential economic sectors, notably in health and long-term care and transportation. Measures may be needed to facilitate the rapid recruitment of temporary staff It’s possible that it’s possible that it’s possible that it’s possible that it’s possible that it’s possible that it’s possible that it’s possible that it’s possible that it’s possible that it’s possible that it’s There are exemptions to the regulations that allow for the hiring of workers on temporary contracts and for workers that take up jobs despite the health crisis

Income support for those who lose their job or are self-employed

The COVID19 crisis has disrupted supply chains and caused falling demand, which puts jobs and livelihoods at risk. Workers who don’t have adequate leave in case of sickness or caring responsibilities may have to cut down their activities or even leave their jobs. Some households may be unable to pay their rent, mortgage or utilities because of economic insecurity. Support measures to ensure that households can remain in their dwelling are important during a time when many governments are asking people to shelter at home

  • The content and timing of reforms that will restrict access to unemployment benefits are reviewed

  • Helping economically secure workers stay in their homes by suspending evictions and deferral of utility payments

Income support and unemployment benefits are included They are important for protecting income losses. Not all job losers have access to such support, which is problematic if health insurance is tied to employment or benefit receipt. The recent analysis of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development The year 2019: (OECD, 2019) In France, Luxembourg, Iceland, Spain, Slovenia and Belgium, the majority of workers with past continuous full-time work received some income support after a job loss. The likelihood of receiving support was still high in the countries of the United Kingdom, Austria, Latvia, Portugal, the Czech Republic and the Slovak Republic. Standard workers in Poland, Greece and Italy were at a high risk of not receiving support after a job lossThe figure is a representation of a figure. 3)

Workers in non-standard forms of employment are less protected against job or income loss than workers in standard forms of employment. In some countries, such as the Czech Republic, it is less likely that workers will receive income support if they are out of work for a while. In Greece, Italy, Slovenia and Spain, non-standard workers receive less support than standard employees

Many countries were looking at how to shore up access to out-of-work benefits in the context of changing working arrangements before the COVID19 crisis. Austria, Canada, France and Spain have extended unemployment benefits to independent workers. The country ofDenmark has strengthened the way earned entitlements are portable. Italy has made it easier to access safety-net benefits

There may be additional emergency measures needed to provide easy access to income support during the COVID19 crisis. Several countries have announced initiatives, which are sometimes modeled on the initial responses to the global financial crisis in 2008/09 TheOECD, 2014,

One focus has been on Access to benefits for low-income families is being lessened The United Kingdom has announced that self-employed workers with low earnings will have more ready access to the main means-tested programme, Universal Credit, and a new hardship fund for local authorities is to support vulnerable people in their area

Another option is to make something Workers in need of one-off payments In France, during the global financial crisis, temporary lump sum payments of 500 euro were made to workers who lost their jobs but were not eligible for unemployment insurance. The lump-sum payment of AUD 750 will be given to 6.5 million Australians with benefit entitlements. Some self-employed workers in Italy will receive a lump-sum payment in March

Governments may want to do that The content or timing of reforms that are scheduled are reviewed Minimum contribution eligibility conditions for unemployment insurance in France are tightened in the year 2020 to 6 months from 4 months, and replacement rates for workers on fixed-term contracts are limited. The reform was partly postponed because workers who are most at risk of losing their jobs are less likely to benefit from other forms of protection. The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, formerly known as food stamps, was due to be tightened in April

Public employment services may need to change There are procedures for claiming benefits, Delivery and composition of labour market policies The application of criteria. During the current health emergency, benefit applications should be done by phone, email or online. Most countries have the ability to make remote benefit claims, but some still require applications to be made in person1 Germany, the Netherlands, and the Baltic states have abolished personal interview appointments for jobseekers. If these are offered in groups, online courses and virtual group counseling are better for you

The countries are implementing responses The households can stay in their home If they can’t cover rent, mortgage or utility payments due to a job loss. Italy, Spain, the Slovak Republic, and the United Kingdom have all introduced temporary deferments of mortgage payments. Tenants whose employment contract has been suspended because of the COVID19 crisis can pay only a portion of their monthly rent in March and April. If needed, Japan will allow households affected by COVID19 to delay payments on utility bills. France has made hotel rooms available to the homeless during the COVID19 lockdown, because they lack the ability to shelter in place

Firms affected by a drop in demand will be given financial support

Firms will need financial support in order to quickly adjust staff numbers. This applies to small businesses and self-employed in particular

Several countries have taken Firms can cut costs or get more money from the government deferral of tax and social contribution payments Australia has announced a package to reduce the financial burden to small and medium-sized businesses. Firms can delay VAT and tax payments with a credit facility of DKK 125 billion from the Danes. The United Kingdom will abolish taxes on small retail and hotel properties. If a debtor of a pending tax payment is affected by the COVID19 crisis, Germany has made it easier to grant tax deferrals, to adapt tax prepayments and to waive enforcement measures and late-payment penalties

Many countries have responded by offering Emergency credits and public grants. Australia will provide temporary support to small and medium businesses with employees affected by the COVID19 crisis, which is predicted to benefit around 690 000 businesses. The United Kingdom has a scheme that provides 80% government guarantee for loans made to the small and medium-sized business and that covers their interest payments and fees for up to a year. The UK Government announced cash grants to all small businesses, which will result in a total pay-out of 2 billion. Italy and Germany will expand their existing programs to make it easier for companies to get loans

Many countries have announced refunds for sick pay for staff who are off work because of COVID19, see above
