COVID-19 and Labour Law: Austria
Keywords:Covid-19, Labour Law, Short-time work, Health and safety, Paid care leave
Austria has shut-down significant parts of the economy as well as public life since mid-March 2020 including schools, universities, shops, services and restaurants. Since May the measures have been relaxed towards a “new normality”. To counter dismissals a rather generous short- time work scheme was introduced that guarantees the employees an income at 80 – 90% of their former net wage. The other measures include special precautions for employees with high risks of serious etiopathology, special care leave and an obligation to use holidays and time credits.
