COVID-19 and Labour Law: Kenya

Abigail Osiki


The Kenyan government has implemented some measures to counter the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the economy and labour market. However, the most significant shortcoming lies in the lack of targeted protection for the informal economy. The national curfew and partial lockdown –in some areas –disrupted economic activities for informal workers who are mainly daily wage earners. In addition, the government has not developed rescue measures for businesses that have ceased operations as a result of the pandemic.
