Covid-19, Labour Law, Telework, Employment Protection, Health and Safety, Income Support, Social Protection


Argentina has had a profound regulatory activity to counteract the coronavirus pandemic so far and its consequences, which appear to worsen as time goes by. Based on the experience of other countries, a strict lockdown was put into place at an early stage, which has been opening up slowly but gradually. Telework was recommended and a benefits program for affected businesses was implemented to ensure the payment of social security and salaries. A temporary prohibition of dismissals and suspensions was taken to protect employment and workers’ income.  Regarding essential workers, COVID-19 has been deemed as an occupational disease for additional protection. Social protection was reinforced and an emergency family income for vulnerable groups was implemented, between other measures.
