COVID-19 and Labour Law: Spain

Rafael Gómez Gordillo

Abstract


The Spanish Government has approved a package of special measures to address the COVID-19 emergency. The measures are intended to protect employees, self-employed workers and companies. Despite the application of these provisions, the stoppage of activities has caused a significant growth in unemployment rates. Probably, in the next few weeks new complementary measures will be adopted.
