COVID-19 and Labour Law: Sweden
Keywords:Covid-19, Labour Law, Furlough, Unemployment benefits, Precarious workers
The Swedish response to Covid-19 has been to implement policies on social distancing and a decrease in public activity, while refraining from a lockdown and the closing businesses and public services. To counteract the disastrous economic effects for workers, changes have been implemented to the unemployment and sickness benefit schemes. A re-enforced system for part time furlough has been put in place. Parents receive parental leave benefits for staying home with sick children according to the ordinary system.
