COVID-19 and Labour Law: Cyprus

Christiana Cleridou

Abstract


The Cypriot government has enforced a strict lockdown with a wide restriction on the freedom of movement of individuals, school closures and the suspension of all non-essential business operations. Extraordinary measures were adopted to deal with the emergency challenges on the economy and the labour market, including the protection of jobs by compensating the costs of wages and the provision of special allowances to self-employed persons and working parents.
