COVID-19 and Labour Law: Pacific Island Countries and Fiji

Elena Gerasimova

Abstract


The COVID-19 outbreak is not enormous in the Pacific due to geographical isolation and early restriction measures undertaken by the governments. However, the economic costs of these restrictions are high, especially in countries, whose economies are largely driven by tourism. The support measures to address the negative effect of the interruption of business operations on employment in Fiji are based on the budget revision and access to Fiji National Provident Fund accounts.
