COVID-19 and Labour Law: Zambia

James Kayula

Abstract


Zambia’s responsive measures in mitigating the effects of COVID-19 in the labour market have been fragmented and ineffective. These half-hearted measures taken by government can be attributed to its crippling huge debt burden compounded by alarming levels of mismanagement of public resources. These factors have left Zambia with no meaningful fiscal space to navigate the effects of COVID-19.
