Abstract

Italy has been the first country in Europe and one of the first in the World hit by a large coronavirus outbreak. The general lockdown of all non-essential activities has been accompanied by significant labour law and social security measures. First of all, the block of dismissals for economic reasons, aimed at maintaining the employment level pretty untouched despite the business activities closure. This drastic measure has been accompanied by an almost mandatory use of remote work, whenever feasible, and a massive use of short-time work compensation schemes. Work within the employer’ business premises shall respect special health and safety measures.
