The EY global labor and employment law tracker helps you monitor rapidly emerging regulations regarding workforce transformation and the status of stimulus programs.

In this fast-moving environment, corporate legal functions are encountering questions that urgently need to be answered. Companies around the globe continue to face unprecedented challenges, not only financially but also in terms of human resources.

The EY Global Labor and Employment Law COVID-19 Tracker provides a current snapshot of labor and employment law considerations from Law professionals in more than 60 jurisdictions. The tracker includes information regarding employer rights, obligations, furlough and government incentives to assist companies in understanding the changing employer obligations around the world and apply it to their workforce.

Our latest update shows a general trend in governments reducing stimulus programs. However, as economic challenges persist in many parts of the world and a general uncertainty remains about the continuing impact of COVID-19, employers are advised to ensure that they are aware of local obligations as they formulate the next phase of their people strategy.
